Kidnap For Ransom Is Endemic To Islam

Whenever non-Muslims ask, “why almost all kidnapping for ransom incidents are done by Islamic groups?”. Muslims would answer, “those Muslims don’t follow the true Islam because Islam is a great religion, it teaches peace”. But is it true that Islam is a religion of peace and does not teach kidnapping for ransom? Its Scriptures will answer that;

[Quran 47:4] So, when you meet those who disbelieve, smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly. Thereafter either set them free as a favor or let them RANSOM themselves until the war lays down its burden. If it had been Allah’s Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost 

[Ishaq 327/Hisham 484] Allah said, a prophet should slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. You craved the desires of this world, its goods and RANSOM captives would bring, but Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion. . .  Allah made booty lawful and good. He used it to unity of purpose, so enjoy what you captured. 

[Ishaq 313] The Muslims told Abu Safyan to pay them a ransom to free his son Amr. He replied, “Am I to suffer the double loss of my blood and money? After you have killed my son Hanzala, you want me to pay you a RANSOM to free Amr?” 

COMMENT: This Hadith confirms the Koranic verse [47:4], where the group of Muhammad required ransom money from the family of their victims. According to this Hadith, the group of Muhammad mercilessly killed Hanzala (son of Abu Safyan), then shamelessly asked a ransom for the release of Amir (other son of Abu Safyan). This Hadith also confirms that Muhammad was more inclined of wealth rather than spreading the message of God being a prophet. To behead other people and take them as captives for ransom is 100 percent Islamic. 

So I appeal to our Muslim brothers and sisters to please stop telling lies in order to deceive the non-Muslims. And to those ignorant Muslims to please study your Scriptures first before exalting your religion. Your religion is not great, but rather filled with terrors. Islam does not promote peace with non-Muslims, but rather commands war against them.

THE CAUSE OF ALLAH

BEHEADING (2)

For the Muslims who are ignorant of their Scriptures, I want to inform you that being a Muslim, you are bound to obey the cause of Allah. What is this cause?  the cause of Allah is to fight to death against the unbelievers. Allah wants you to wipe out the non-Muslims on Earth (Quran 8:7). This covenant is very strong as if a solid cemented structure (Quran 61:4). To refuse from fighting is a sin against Allah and will be punished brutally.  So there’s no such thing as peace in Islam as what you keep telling to other people. The Islamic State, Taliban, Al-Shabaab, Boko Haram, Hamas, and other Islamic groups are the true followers of Islam. While the so-called moderate Muslims like you (the ones who refuse to fight) are called hypocrites in Islam, and you too should be killed by the Jihadists, to prove; 

[Ishaq 322] Allah said, ‘Do not turn away from Muhammad when he is speaking to you. Do not contradict his orders. And do not be a hypocrite, one who pretends to be obedient to him and then disobeys him. Those who do so will receive My vengeance. You must respond to the Apostle when he summons you to war. . . I will cast terror into the hearts of those who reject Me. So strike off their heads and cut off their fingers. All who oppose Me and My Prophet shall be punished severely.

[Quran 9:73] “O Prophet! fight hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.”

[Quran 33:60-61] Truly, if the Hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and those who stir up sedition in the City, desist not, We shall certainly urge you up against them: Then will they not be able to stay in it as your neighbors for any length of time: They shall have a curse on them: whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain (without mercy).

[Quran 66:9] “O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.” 

And like the Non-Muslims, you (so-called moderate Muslims) should also be killed here and hereafter as commanded by Allah. The following are verses in Quran and Hadiths telling that Muslims are bound to fight in the cause of Allah;

1. [Quran 2:190] Those who believed (in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism) and emigrated and strove hard and fought in Allah’s Cause with their wealth and their lives are far higher in degree with Allah. They are the successful.

2. [Quran 2:195] And spend in the Cause of Allah (i.e. Jihad of all kinds, etc.) and do not throw yourselves into destruction (by not spending your wealth in the Cause of Allah), and do good. Truly, Allah loves Al-Muhsinun (the good-doers).

3. [Quran 2:216] Fighting has been enjoined upon you while it is hateful to you. But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not. 

4. [Quran 2:244] And fight in the cause of Allah and know that Allah is Hearing and Knowing. 

5. [Quran 2:262] Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of Allah, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

6. [Quran 3:157] And if you are killed in the cause of Allah or die – then forgiveness from Allah and mercy are better than whatever they accumulate [in this world].

7. [Quran 3:169] Think not of those who are killed in the Way of Allah as dead. Nay, they are alive, with their Lord, and they have provision.

8. [Quran 4:74] So let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter. And he who fights in the cause of Allah and is killed or achieves victory – We will bestow upon him a great reward. 

9. [Quran 4:76] Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the cause of evil. So fight against the allies of Satan. Indeed, the plot of Satan has ever been weak.

10. [Quran 4:84] So fight, [O Muhammad], in the cause of Allah ; you are not held responsible except for yourself. And encourage the believers [to join you] that perhaps Allah will restrain the [military] might of those who disbelieve. And Allah is greater in might and stronger in [exemplary] punishment.

11. [Quran 4:89] They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah . But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.

12. [Quran 4:95] Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home), except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame, etc.), and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives above those who sit (at home). Unto each, Allah has promised Paradise, but Allah has preferred those who strive hard and fight, above those who sit (at home) by a huge reward;

13. [Quran 8:60] And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.

14. [Quran 8:72] Indeed, those who have believed and emigrated and fought with their wealth and lives in the cause of Allah and those who gave shelter and aided – they are allies of one another. But those who believed and did not emigrate – for you there is no guardianship of them until they emigrate. And if they seek help of you for the religion, then you must help, except against a people between yourselves and whom is a treaty. And Allah is Seeing of what you do.

15. [Quran 8:74] But those who have believed and emigrated and fought in the cause of Allah and those who gave shelter and aided – it is they who are the believers, truly. For them is forgiveness and noble provision.

16. [Quran 9:20] The ones who have believed, emigrated and striven in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives are greater in rank in the sight of Allah . And it is those who are the attainers [of success].

17. [Quran 9:24] Say, [O Muhammad], “If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your relatives, wealth which you have obtained, commerce wherein you fear decline, and dwellings with which you are pleased are more beloved to you than Allah and His Messenger and jihad in His cause, then wait until Allah executes His command. And Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people.”

18. [Quran 9:38-39] “O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.” 

19. [Quran 9:41-42] Go ye forth, (whether equipped) lightly or heavily, and strive and struggle, with your goods and your persons, in the cause of Allah. That is best for you, if ye (but) knew. If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them. They would indeed swear by Allah, “If we only could, we should certainly have come out with you”: They would destroy their own souls; for Allah doth know that they are certainly lying.

20. [Quran 9:111] Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allah’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Quran. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success. 

21. [Quran 9:81] Those who were left behind (in the Tabuk expedition) rejoiced in their inaction behind the back of the Messenger of Allah: they hated to strive and fight, with their goods and their persons, in the cause of Allah: they said, “Go not forth in the heat.” Say, “The fire of Hell is fiercer in heat.” If only they could understand!

22. [Quran 9:120] It was not fitting for the people of Medina and the Bedouin Arabs of the neighbourhood, to refuse to follow Allah’s Messenger, nor to prefer their own lives to his: because nothing could they suffer or do, but was reckoned to their credit as a deed of righteousness,- whether they suffered thirst, or fatigue, or hunger, in the cause of Allah, or trod paths to raise the ire of the Unbelievers, or received any injury whatever from an enemy: for Allah suffereth not the reward to be lost of those who do good;-

23. [Quran 61:4] Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure. 

24. [Quran 61:10-11] O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment. That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know! 

25. [Quran 16:41] And those who became fugitives for the cause of Allah after they had been oppressed, We verily shall give them goodly lodging in the world, and surely the reward of the Hereafter is greater, if they but knew

26. [Quran 16:88] Those who disbelieved and averted [others] from the way of Allah – We will increase them in punishment over [their] punishment for what corruption they were causing.

27. [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 25] Narrated by Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle was asked, “What is the best deed?” He replied, “To believe in Allah and His Apostle (Muhammad). The questioner then asked, “What is the next (in goodness)? He replied, “To participate in Jihad (religious fighting) in Allah’s Cause.” . . . 

28. [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 41] Narrated Abdullah bin Masud: I asked Allah’s Apostle, “O Allah’s Apostle! What is the best deed?” He replied, “To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times.” I asked, “What is next in goodness?” He replied, “To be good and dutiful to your parents.” I further asked, what is next in goodness?” He replied, “To participate in Jihad in Allah’s Cause.” I did not ask Allah’s Apostle anymore and if I had asked him more, he would have told me more.

29. [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 45] Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: Somebody asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! Who is the best among the people?” Allah’s Apostle replied “A believer who strives his utmost in Allah’s Cause with his life and property.” They asked, “Who is next?” He replied, “A believer who stays in one of the mountain paths worshipping Allah and leaving the people secure from his mischief.” 

30.) [Sahih al-Bukhari 2:36] “The person who participates in (Holy Battles) in Allah’s cause and nothing compels him do so except belief in Allah and His Apostle, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty ( if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise ( if he is killed).” 

COMMENT: Here, Allah promises booty to his Jihadists. If you are a man of dignity surely you won’t accept a reward coming from robbery or looting.

31.) [Sahih Muslim 1:149] “Abu Dharr reported: I said: Messenger of Allah, which of the deeds is the best? He (the Holy Prophet) replied: Belief in Allah and Jihad in His cause…”

32.) [Sahih Muslim 19:4294] “When the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) appointed anyone as leader of an army or detachment he would especially exhort him… He would say: Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war… When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them… If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them.”

[Abu Dawud 14:2527] The Prophet said: Striving in the path of Allah (jihad) is incumbent on you along with every ruler, whether he is pious or impious 

COMMENT: This Hadith confirms the Koranic verses, where every Muslim is commanded to fight against non-Muslims.

Biblical Verses Telling Jesus Is God

Islam, Iglesia Ni Kristo, and others teach that Jesus is not God, that He’s only a pure man and a prophet as reflected in Bible. But I must say that these people are lying, if not, they are ignorant of the contents of the Bible for there are a lot of verses that tell about the Godhood of Jesus. You cannot just pick a single or two verses from the Bible to justify your opinion. You need to read its entirety for you to understand its idea before drawing a conclusion from it. Below are some of the Biblical evidences of the Godhood of Jesus;

1. [Psalm 2:12] Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and you perish in your rebellion, when His wrath ignites in an instant. Blessed are all who take refuge in Him.

2. [Isaiah 7:14]: Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel (God with us). 

3. [Isaiah 9:6] For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 

COMMENT: This verse that comes from Tanakh strongly testifies that the Son (Jesus) is the almighty God Himself, He is also the Counselor (Spirit of truth) as well as the Father. This verse also testifies the Trinity of God (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit).

4. [Psalm 45:6-7] Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever, and justice is the scepter of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you above your companions with the oil of joy. 

5. [Matthew 1:23] “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name “Immanuel” which means, “God with us”.

6. [Matthew 2:1-2] After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” 

COMMENT: The Magi came to Jerusalem from faraway to worship Jesus so He is God. They must be divinely informed about the arrival of God.

7. [Matthew 2:11] They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

8. [Matthew 4:6-7] “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “ ‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’ ”Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’” 

COMMENT: In other words, Jesus is telling Satan that, “I am your God, do not put me to the test.”

9. [Matthew 14:32-33] And when they had climbed back into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God!”

10. [Matthew 28:9] Suddenly Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” They came to Him, grasped His feet, and worshiped Him.

11. [Mark 2:27-28] Then Jesus declared, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. Therefore, the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath. 

12. [Luke 1:68] Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, because He has visited and redeemed His people. 

13. [Luke 2:11] For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

14. [Luke 23:43] Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. ”Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you shall be with me in paradise.” 

COMMENT: Jesus says to one of the criminals that He has the authority to admit a person in Paradise anytime. He is the owner of Paradise, therefore, He is God. Jesus claimed that He and the Father are one [John 10:30], that the Father is in Him and He is in the Father [John 10:38].

15. [Luke 24:51-52] While He was blessing them, He left them and was carried up into heaven. And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy,

16. [John 1:1] “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

17. [John 1:18] No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known. 

18. [John 5:18] This was why the Jews were seeking all the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God. 

19. [John 8:23-24] “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I AM HE, you will indeed die in your sins.” 

20. [John 10:28] I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them out of My hand

21. [John 10:30] “I and the Father are one.”

22. [John 10:33] “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.” 

COMMENT: This verse testifies that Jesus claimed that He’s God, contrary to the allegations of Islam and Iglesia in Kristo that Jesus did not claim that He’s God.

23. [John 13:13] “You call Me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am.” 

24. [John 14:2-3] My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. 

COMMENT: Jesus tells His believers that He is going to prepare their rooms in Heaven. And He will be the one to receive them in His abode. In other words, Jesus says that He is the owner of Heaven, therefore, He is God.

25. [John 14:9] Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don’t know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you?

26. [John 14:11] Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. 

27.) [John 20:28] Then Jesus said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and look at My hands. Reach out your hand and put it into My side. Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas replied, “My Lord and my God!” 

28. [Acts 7:59-60] And as they were stoning Stephen, he called out, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” And falling to his knees he cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

31. [Titus 2:13] while we wait for the blessed hope–the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 

32. [1 Timothy 3:16] And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory. 

33. [1 Timothy 6:14-16] “our Lord Jesus Christ’s appearing, which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.” 

34. [Philippians 2:5-8] Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not a thing to be grasped to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

40. [Hebrews 1:8-9] But about the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.” 

COMMENT: In this verse God the Father called the Son “God”, and He is the God of the Son.

41. [Revelation 1:17-18] When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. But He placed His right hand on me and said, “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last, the Living One. I was dead, and behold, now I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of Death and of Hades.

6. GOD OR JESUS IS THE LORD OF LORDS 

[Deuteronomy 10:17] “For the LORD your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality nor take a bribe.

The Promise Coming Of God To Earth

In Tanakh, God had been telling about His coming to Earth from thousands to hundreds of years before the birth of Jesus. His main purpose is to redeem the mankind. The following are some of the verses about His coming, let us interpret each. 

1. [Malachi 3:1] “Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the LORD of hosts.

COMMENT: this verse says that God will send a messenger prior to His coming, this person is fulfilled by John (the Baptist) who prepared the Lord’s way by baptizing the people with water [John 1:33-34]. After that, the Lord would come to His Temple, and at the same time, He would bring the covenant that people delight. Jesus introduced this new covenant to his disciples [Luke 22:20 & Matthew 26:28].

2. [Micah 5:2] As for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, seemingly insignificant among the clans of Judah, from you a king will emerge who will rule over Israel on my behalf, one whose origin is from eternity.

COMMENT: this verse says that God will raise a king or ruler on His behalf, and the existence of this ruler is from eternity. There is no one whose existence is from eternity but God alone, so this ruler is God Himself.  Jesus confirmed that He was the King expected by the Jews [John 18:37 & Matthew 27:11].

3. [Isaiah 7:14] “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a Son, and will call him Emmanuel

COMMENT: ‘Emmanuel’ is a Hebrew word which means “God with us”. It means that the Son to be born through a virgin is God himself. This virgin is fulfilled by Mary who gave birth to Jesus. The Koran also states that Jesus is a spirit of Allah and son of Mary [Koran 66:12, 21:91, & 4:171]. But Muslims just disregarded these verses.

4. [Isaiah 9:6] ”For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace”.

COMMENT: this verse clearly says that a Son will be born, and to be called Mighty God and eternal Father. Therefore, the Son and the Father God are one. Jesus said He and the Father are one [John 10:30].

5. [Isaiah 40:3] A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

COMMENT: this verse urges the people to prepare the way for the coming of God. This predicted voice is fulfilled by the voice of John the Baptist [John 1:23 & Luke 1:76]. John the Baptist was sent first to cleanse or baptize the people with water in preparation of the coming of God (Jesus) [John 1:33-34].

6. [Isaiah 48:16] “Come near to Me, listen to this: From the first I have not spoken in secret, From the time it took place, there I am. And now the Lord GOD has sent Me, and His Spirit.” 

COMMENT: the speaker states that he exists even from the Creation period, so He is God. And this time He is sent by the Lord and His Spirit. God is acting the sender and the messenger. Jesus said He came down from Heaven and sent by the Father [John 6:38]. And also the Father declared that Jesus is His Son [Psalm 2:7 & Matthew 3:17].

7. [Isaiah 59:20″] The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,” declares the LORD. 

COMMENT: this verse says that the Redeemer will come to Israel, Zion is the hill of Jerusalem on which the city of David was built. There is no other Redeemer of mankind except God [Isaiah 43:11], so He is the one to come to Israel.

8. [Isaiah 62:11] The LORD has sent this message to every land: “Tell the people of Israel, ‘Look, your Savior is coming. See, he brings his reward with him as he comes.'”

COMMENT: in this verse, God the savior announces His coming, He will bring His rewards which is salvation to those who believe it.

9. [Jeremiah 23:5-6] “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “When I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; And He will reign as king and act wisely, And do justice and righteousness in the land.  In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell securely; And this is His name by which He will be called, ‘The LORD our righteousness.

COMMENT: this verse tells us that God will raise up a righteous branch or descendant of king David, he will reign as king, and his name will be “the LORD our righteousness”. So the king to come is God Himself.  Jesus confirmed that He’s a king in [John 18:37]

10. [Job 19:25] “I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the last hour he will stand on the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see him with my own eyes”.

COMMENT: the book of Job is believed to be the oldest Scripture. The main character Job expects the coming of his Redeemer. He believes he will resurrect and see God physically on the Last Day. Jesus will be the one to raise the dead and be the one to judge on the Last Day [John 6:40 & Matthew 13:41-42], so Jesus is the God expected by Job.

Biblical Verses About The Son Of God/Man

OLD TESTAMENT: 

The books in Tanakh (Hebrew Bible/Old Testament) was written hundreds and thousands of years before the Birth of Jesus Christ, but amazingly, the son was already mentioned or prophesied in Tanakh. Jesus said, He exists even before the foundation of the world [John 17:5 & John 17:24]. These prove that (Catholic) Christians have root on worshiping Jesus as God. Below are verses mentioning about the Son of God/Man that prove the existence of Jesus hundreds and thousands of years before His birth.

1. [Proverbs 30:4] Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Whose hands have gathered up the wind? Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is the name of His Son? Surely you know!

2. [Psalm 2:11-12] Worship the LORD with reverence and rejoice with trembling. Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry and you perish in the way, For His wrath may soon be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him! 

COMMENT: This verse says that the Son knows how to be angry and has the power to perish us, But those who will take refuge of Him will be blessed. Jesus Christ is our blessed hope, our great God and Savior [Titus 2:13].

3. [Psalm 80:15] Even the shoot which Your right hand has planted, And on the Son whom You have strengthened for Yourself. 

4. [Psalm 2:7] The king proclaims the LORD’s decree: “The LORD said to me, ‘You are My Son. Today I have become your Father. 

5. [2 Samuel 7:12-14] And when your days are fulfilled and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring after you, who will come from your own body, and I will establish his kingdom. He will build a house for My Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. I will be his Father, and he will be My son.  

COMMENT: In this verse God tells king David that after he died, He will establish a forever kingdom of his descendant. He will be a father to this descendant, and he will be a Son to Him. Jesus is a descendant of David and claimed that God is His Father [John 6:40]. God acknowledged and declared Jesus as His Son [Mark 9:7 & Matthew 17:5].

6. [1 Kings 15:4] Nevertheless, for David’s sake the LORD his God gave him a lamp in Jerusalem by raising up a Son to succeed him and by making Jerusalem strong.

7. [1 Chronicles 17:13-14] I will be his father, and he will be My son. I will never take my love away from him, as I took it away from your predecessor. I will set him over my house and my kingdom forever; his throne will be established forever.” 

8. [Isaiah 7:14] Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin will be with child and will give birth to a Son, and she will call Him ‘Immanuel’ (God with us). 

9. [Isaiah 9:6] For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government will be upon His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

10. [Daniel 3:25] He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God

11. [Daniel 7:13] “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. 

12. [Hosea 11:1] When Israel was a child, I loved him, and I called My Son out of Egypt.

NEW TESTAMENT: 

1. [Matthew 3:17] And a voice from heaven said, “This is My Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased

2. [Matthew 8:20] Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay His head.”

3. [Matthew 14:32-33] And when they had climbed back into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God!” 

4. [Matthew 16-17] Jesus said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.

5. [Matthew 17:5] While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is My Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!

6. [Luke 9:26] If anyone is ashamed of me and my message, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in his glory and in the glory of the Father and the holy angels.

7. [Luke 22:70] So they all said, “Are you the Son of God, then?” Jesus answered them, “You say that I am.”

8. [Luke 17:22-24] And He said to the disciples, “The days will come when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. “They will say to you, ‘Look there! Look here!’ Do not go away, and do not run after them. “For just like the lightning, when it flashes out of one part of the sky, shines to the other part of the sky, so will the Son of Man be in His day

9. [Luke 21:27-28] At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to happen, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

10. [Luke 22:70] So they all said, “Are you the Son of God, then?” Jesus answered them, “You say that I am.”

11. [Mark 1:10-11] Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are My Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.

12. [Mark 2:27-28] Then he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath”.

13. [Mark 9:7] Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is My Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”

14. [Mark 14:21 & Matthew 26:24] For the Son of Man must die, as the Scriptures declared long ago. But how terrible it will be for the one who betrays him. It would be far better for that man if he had never been born!”

15. [John 1:33-34] John (the Baptist) testified saying, “I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him. “I did not recognize Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, ‘He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit’. “I myself have seen, and have testified that this is the Son of God.

16. [John 3:13] No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man.

17. [John 3:14] Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,

18. [John 3:17-18] For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

18. [John 3:36] Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.

19. [John 5:25] Truly, truly, I tell you, the hour is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.

20 [John 5:27] And He has given Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man.

21. [John 6:40] For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.

20. [John 8:28] So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing on My own, but speak exactly what the Father has taught Me.

21. [John 10:36] what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent to the world? why then you curse me of blasphemy because I said, “I am God’s Son? Do not believe me unless I do what my Father does. But if I do it, even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the father.

22. [John 12: 34] The crowd replied, “We have heard from the Law that the Christ will remain forever. So how can you say that the Son of Man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of Man?

22. [1 John 5:20] And we know that the Son of God is come, and has given us an understanding 

23. [Hebrews 1:5] For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are My Son; today I have become your Father”? Or again, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son”?

Muhammad Could Not Read and Write?

It’s not true that Muhammad could not read and write as the Muslims keep propagating. The meaning of the word “illiterate” or “unlettered” mentioned in Quran is not referred to the person who could not read and write, but the person who is unknowing or ignorant of the Book (Torah and Gospel). Here’s the proof;

[Quran 2:78]

[Sahih International] And among them are unlettered ones who do not know the Scripture except in wishful thinking, but they are only assuming

[Yusuf Ali] And there are among them illiterates, who know not the Book, but (see therein their own) desires, and they do nothing but conjecture.

[Quran 3:20]

[Yusuf Ali] So if they dispute with thee, say: “I have submitted My whole self to Allah and so have those who follow me.” And say to the People of the Book and to those who are unlearned: “Do ye (also) submit yourselves?” If they do, they are in right guidance, but if they turn back, Thy duty is to convey the Message; and in Allah’s sight are (all) His servants. 

[Muhsin Khan] So if they dispute with you (Muhammad SAW) say: “I have submitted myself to Allah (in Islam), and (so have) those who follow me.” And say to those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and to those who are illiterates (Arab pagans): “Do you (also) submit yourselves (to Allah in Islam)?” If they do, they are rightly guided; but if they turn away, your duty is only to convey the Message; and Allah is All-Seer of (His) slaves

COMMENT: The (Jews and Christians) and the Arab pagans are contrasted here. The Jews and Christians who know the Book and the Arab pagans who know not the Book, also called ‘illiterates’ or ‘unlettered ones’. 

MUHAMMAD COULD READ AND WRITE ACCORDING TO QURAN;

1. [Quran 29:48] neither did you (o Muhammad saw) read any book before it (this Quran), nor did you write any book (whatsoever) with your right hand. in that case, indeed, the followers of falsehood might have doubted.

2. [Quran 25:5] and they say: “tales of the ancients, which he has written down, and they are dictated to him morning and afternoon.”

MUHAMMAD COULD WRITE ACCORDING TO HADITHS; 

1. [Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 88]

Narrated ‘Ursa: the prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).

2. [Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 288 & Volume 5, Book 59, Number 716] 

Narrated by Said bin Jubair:  Ibn ‘Abbas said, “Thursday! What (great thing) took place on Thursday!” Then he started weeping till his tears wetted the gravels of the ground . Then he said, “On Thursday the illness of Allah’s Apostle was aggravated and he said, “Fetch me writing materials so that I may have something written to you after which you will never go astray.” The people (present there) differed in this matter and people should not differ before a prophet. . . 

3. [Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 717] 

Narrated by Ubaidullah bin ‘Abdullah:  Ibn Abbas said, “When Allah’s Apostle was on his deathbed and there were some men in the house, he said, ‘Come near, I will write for you something after which you will not go astray.’ Some of them ( i.e. his companions) said, ‘Allah’s Apostle is seriously ill and you have the (Holy) Quran. Allah’s Book is sufficient for us.’ So the people in the house differed and started disputing. Some of them said, ‘Give him writing material so that he may write for you something after which you will not go astray.’ while the others said the other way round. So when their talk and differences increased, Allah’s Apostle said, “Get up.” Ibn Abbas used to say, “No doubt, it was very unfortunate (a great disaster) that Allah’s Apostle was prevented from writing for them that writing because of their differences and noise.”

4. [Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 3, Number :65]

Narrated Anas bin Malik: Once the Prophet wrote a letter or had an idea of writing a letter. The Prophet  was told that they (rulers) would not read letters unless they were sealed. So the Prophet got a silver ring made with “Muhammad Allah’s Messenger” engraved on it. As if I were just observing its white glitter in the hand of the Prophet.

5. [Sunan Abu Dawud 42:5117]

Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: The Prophet wrote a letter to Heraclius: “From Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, to Hiraql (Heraclius), Chief of the Byzantines. Peace be to those who follow the guidance.” Ibn Yahya reported on the authority of Ibn Abbas that Abu Sufyan said to him: We then came to see Hiraql (Heraclius) who seated us before him. He then called for the letter from the Messenger of Allah. Its contents were: “In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful, from Muhammad the Messenger of Allah, to Hiraql, chief of Byzantines. Peace be to those who follow the guidance. To proceed.” 

6. [Hadith about the (non) incident of the pen and paper (a Sunni perspective) [written by: Ibn Al-hashimi] 

The prophet asked for a pen and paper in order to write down some religious advice for the Muslims. however, immediately after asking for the pen and paper, the prophet fainted and became unconscious. while the prophet lay unconscious, a man got up to get the pen and paper, but Umar Ibn Al-Khattab called him away from doing that. Umar felt that they should not bother the prophet by asking him to write down religious advice, but rather they should allow the prophet to regain consciousness, get some rest, and recuperate. therefore, Umar said to the other Muslims: “the prophet is seriously ill and you have the Quran; so the book of Allah is enough for us.” 

7. [Sunan an-Nasa’i 4855] 

It was narrated that Ibn shihab said: “I read the letter of the Messenger of allah which he wrote for ‘Amr bin Hazm when he sent him to govern Najran. The letter was with Abu Bakr bin Hazm. The Messenger of Allah wrote this; ‘A statement from Allah and His Messenger; O you who believe! Fulfill (your) obligations, and he wrote the Verses until he reached. Verily, Allah is Swift in reckoning. Then he wrote: ‘this is the book if retaliation: For a soul, one hundred camels, ”” and so on 

8. Muhammad Sent Letter To the King of ‘Oman, Jaifer, and his Brother ‘Abd Al-Jalandi  

[Saifur Rahman, The Sealed Nectar p.227-228] 

“Embrace Islam… If you two accept Islam, you will remain in command of your country; but if your refuse my Call, you’ve got to remember that all of your possessions are perishable. My horsemen will appropriate your land, and my Prophethood will assume preponderance over your kingship.”

ISLAM DISCRIMINATES WOMEN

1. Women are Like Domestic Animals & Made Only for Sexual comfort

[Tabari IX:113]

Allah permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Qur’an.

2. Donkey, Dog, & Woman alike Can Annul a Prayer

[Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 9, Number 490]

Narrated ‘Aisha: The things which annul the prayers were mentioned before me. They said, “Prayer is annulled by a dog, a donkey and a woman.” I said, “You have made us (i.e. women) dogs. I saw the Prophet praying while I used to lie in my bed between him and the Qibla. Whenever I was in need of something, I would slip away, for I disliked to face him.”

COMMENT: Even Aisha detected the stupidity of her husband’s teaching by telling him, “you have made us (women) dogs”, and she hated her husband by doing so.

3. Women are Deficient in Intelligence & One Man Witness is Equal to Two Women Witnesses

[Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 6, number 301]

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: Once Allah’s Apostle went out to the Musalla (to offer the prayer) o ‘Id-al-Adha or Al-Fitr prayer. Then he passed by the women and said, “O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you (women).” They asked, “Why is it so, O Allah’s Apostle ?” He replied, “You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.” The women asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?” He said, “Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?” They replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?” The women replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her religion.”

COMMENT: Muhammad demoralized women by telling them they are inferior to men. He even equalized woman with animal (dog or donkey) in nature. Most Muslim women are thinking that they are inferior to men, that they should be subjected to the rule of their father or husband. Today, there are a lot of women working in technological companies, equally paid as men, disproving Muhammad’s teaching that they are inferior to men in intelligence.

4. A Woman is Crooked Since Creation

[Bukhari, Beginning of Creation 2:251]

Woman was created from the rib so she will always remain crooked. Leave her crooked

COMMENT: Who is more crooked, a Muslim woman whom it is not her choice to be a woman or Muhammad who exploited her sexually under the guise of God’s word?

5. Bad Luck Existed in a Wife

[Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:61]

The Prophet said, “Bad luck, misfortune and doom can exist in a wife, a home and a horse”.

6. Women Are The Suffering For Men

[Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:97]

“After my time, the greatest suffering for men will be women”.

7. Majority Of Women Are The Fuel Of Hell  

[Sunan an-Nasa’i 1575] 

It was narrated that Jabir said: “. . . Then he moved away and went to the women, and Bilal was with him. He commanded them to fear Allah (SWT) and exhorted them and reminded them. He praised and glorified Allah, then he urged them to obey Allah, then he said: ‘Give charity, for most of you are the fuel of Hell.’ A lowly woman with dark cheeks said: ‘Why, O Messenger of Allah?’ He said: ‘You complain a great deal and are ungrateful to your husbands.’ They started taking off their necklaces, earrings and rings, throwing them into Bilal’s garment, giving them in charity.”

[Bukhari Kitabul Qadr 3:543]

“I saw that most of those entering the gate of hellfire were women”

COMMENT: In Islam, woman is not only deficient in intelligence and comparable to animal, but also she is evil. 

8. Allah’s Revelations Are Not In favor For Women 

[Jami` at-Tirmidh Vol. 5, Book 44, Hadith 3211] 

Narrated Umm ‘Umarah Al-Ansariyyah: that she came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and said: “I do not see but that everything is for the men, and I do not see anything being mentioned for the women. 

9.  Women Should Be Disciplined By Beating And Imprisonment  

a. ALLAH COMMANDS HUSBANDS TO BEAT AND IMPRISON THEIR ARROGANT WIVES

[Koran 4:34] Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.  

[Koran 38:44] “And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath…”  Allah telling Job to beat his wife (Tafsir). 

COMMENT: Muhammad is lying. In the Bible God never told Job to beat his wife, contrarily, God instructed husbands to love their wives [Ephesians 5:25-28]. 

[Tabari IX:113] 

Allah permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Qur’an.

b. MUHAMMAD BEAT HIS FAVORITE WIFE AISHA 

[Sahih Muslim Book 4, Number 2127]

Aisha narrates, “He struck me on the chest which caused me pain.” 

c. AISHA SAID, “I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY WOMAN SUFFERING AS MUCH AS THE BELIEVING WOMEN.

[Sahih al-Bukhari 5825] 

Narrated `Ikrima: Rifa`a divorced his wife whereupon `AbdurRahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. `Aisha said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil (and complained to her (Aisha) of her husband and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating). It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) came, `Aisha said, “I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!” When `AbdurRahman heard that his wife had gone to the Prophet, he came with his two sons from another wife. She said, “By Allah! I have done no wrong to him but he is impotent and is as useless to me as this,” holding and showing the fringe of her garment, `Abdur-Rahman said, “By Allah, O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! She has told a lie! I am very strong and can satisfy her but she is disobedient and wants to go back to Rifa`a.” Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, to her, “If that is your intention, then know that it is unlawful for you to remarry Rifa`a unless `Abdur-Rahman has had sexual intercourse with you.” Then the Prophet (ﷺ) saw two boys with `Abdur- Rahman and asked (him), “Are these your sons?” On that `AbdurRahman said, “Yes.” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “You claim what you claim (i.e.. that he is impotent)? But by Allah, these boys resemble him as a crow resembles a crow,” 

d. MUHAMMAD COMMANDED HIS FOLLOWER TO BEAT HIS FORNICATING FEMALE SLAVE SEVERELY AND REPEATEDLY

[Abu-Dawud Book 38, Number 4458 & Muslim hadiths Book 17, No. 4224]

Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib:  A slave-girl belonging to the house of the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) committed fornication. He (the Prophet) said: Rush up, Ali, and inflict the prescribed punishment on her. I then hurried up, and saw that blood was flowing from her, and did not stop. So I came to him and he said: Have you finished inflicting (punishment on her)? I said: I went to her while her blood was flowing. He said: Leave her alone till her bleeding stops; then inflict the prescribed punishment on her. And inflict the prescribed punishment on those whom your right hands possess (i.e. slaves). 

COMMENT: Women are so oppressed in Islam, if they committed fornication, they should be punished severely and even to death by stoning, crucifixion, etc. On the other hand, if Muslim men committed fornication, they are free from blame. This judgment is brutal and unfair, and take note, this is mandated by Allah, the supposed most merciful and off-forgiving god. Islam is so vague in their teachings, what their right hand is telling is not what their left hand is doing. In contrast, Jesus though sinless, He did not condemn a prostitute [John 8:6-10]. God does not allow us to judge our sinful fellow because we are all sinners. All of us will undergo judgement, only God has the power to judge. Not one of us can redeem ourselves from sinful world, we cannot be saved by our own righteousness contrary to Islamic teaching. No human is perfect or sinless, hence no one can meet God’s standard. Salvation could be provided by God alone. That’s why we need to accept the redemption provided by Jesus Christ (the only sinless man on Earth) in order to be saved. 

e. MUHAMMAD ALLOWED HIS WIVES TO BE BEATEN BY HIS BELIEVERS AND LAUGHED AT IT 

[Muslim Book 9, No 3506] 

Then came ‘Umar and he sought permission and it was granted to him, and he found Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) sitting sad and silent with his wives around him. He (Hadrat ‘Umar) said: I would say something which would make the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) laugh, so he said: Messenger of Allah, I wish you had seen (the treatment meted out to) the daughter of Khadija when you asked me some money, and I got up and slapped her on her neck. Allah’s Messenger (mav peace be upon him) laughed and said: They are around me as you see, asking for extra money. Abu Bakr (Allah be pleased with him) then got up went to ‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) and slapped her on the neck, and ‘Umar stood up before Hafsa and slapped her saying: You ask Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) which he does not possess. They said: By Allah, we do not ask Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) for anything he does not possess. Then he withdrew from them for a month or for twenty-nine days. Then this verse was revealed to him:” Prophet: Say to thy wives. . . . for a mighty reward” (33. 28). . 

f.  THE HUSBAND IS NOT OBLIGATED TO TELL HIS WIFE THE REASON WHY HE BEAT HER 

[Book 11, Number 2142: Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab] 

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife. 

COMMENT: Allah not only allows Muslim husbands to beat their wives, but also the wives have no right to complain. This is an absolute abuse of woman, where is the righteousness and mercy of Allah in this regard?

Is Catholicism the reason why the Philippines is poor?

I cannot understand why people pointed the Catholicism as the cause of poverty in the Philippines. Catholicism does not teach people to steal, on the contrary, it teaches to love your fellow as you love yourselves. Had the Filipinos followed this commandment, Philippines might be one of the rich nations on Earth. The U.S. became great because of their Christian belief. I came across a blogger who told that it’s because priests are corrupt and have secret affairs with women. If a priest has an affair with a girl, is this the deed of the Catholic Church? does the Church teach their priests to be immoral? If a priest has an immoral affair, does he steal the money of the nation? How many government positions that the Catholic leaders hold?  

The Philippines becomes poor because of the massive corruption in the government. Most of its politicians if not all are corrupt. They love money more than their neighbors. They are Christians not in their hearts, they just worship Christ on their lips. Another cause is the ever existing war in Mindanao, Muslim extremists keep insisting their sovereignty. We know that their god doesn’t like Christians. If a Muslim becomes devoted to his religion, he will end up killing Christians and Hypocrites (Muslims who refuse to kill Jews and Christians). The Malaysian government founded and supported these rebels as admitted by Nur Misuari. 

Another cause is China, which founded and supported the NPA which has been warring against the Philippine government for a long time. China also made the Philippines a shabu market. The politicians and the enforcers just seize their shabu for money. If the Chinese are willing to pay a large sum, the officials just let them skipped, just what happened recently where Billions of pesos worth of shabu slipped past the custom twice in a row. Duterte instead of penalizing the heads of Bureau of custom, he transferred them to another positions. Officials are not afraid to commit corruption because they are backed by their government connection. 

China also keeps harassing the Filipinos, depriving them to  cultivate the oil-rich area in the West Philippine Sea even if it is well within their Exclusive Economic Zone.  Chinese coastguards keep chasing the Filipino fishermen and drive them out from their fishing ground, letting their own fishermen to monopolize the area. Today, Filipinos are now importing fishes from China which most probably caught from their own fishing territory. 

Another cause is the annual calamities that strike the country. Millions or even Billion of pesos and  lives are lost per year.

Gabriel is the holy spirit in Islam, is he the same Gabriel in Christianity?

In the Bible, Holy Spirit is God and Gabriel is His Angel so they are different. There are three angels mentioned in the Bible; they are Gabriel the messenger angel, Michael the warrior angel, and Satan the fallen angel. Muhammad had a little knowledge about Tanakh and Gospel that’s why he erred in telling that the Holy Spirit and Angel Gabriel are the same.

Catholicism, the religion founded by Jesus, has different definition about the word “holy”, it means pure, perfect, or sinless. Thus, only God could take this attribute because He is the only perfect being. God is naturally spirit, and He is also holy because He is perfect. So God and the Holy Spirit are one being. Jesus is called “holy” [Luke 1:35] because he’s a Spirit went out from God (the source/Father Spirit) and the only sinless and perfect man. If Jesus, the holy Spirit, and the Father have the same attributes, therefore they are one God. Ironically, though Muslims denied the deity of Jesus, their Koran also testifies that Jesus is a Spirit or Word descended from Allah [Surah 4:171, 66:12, 21:91,  & 3:45]. A Spirit of God is different from a created spirit. Thus, to say Jesus is a Spirit of God, it means He is God Himself.

Since there are many type of spirits, the word “holy” is attached to the word “spirit” to mean divinity, to specify that this Spirit comes out from God.

IN RESPONSE TO THE TRINITY DOUBTER

Since God or the Holy Spirit sent forth His spirit (Psalm 104:30), He became the source (Father spirit) of the sent Spirit (the Son) [Psalm 2:7]. Jesus is not a biological son of God as Muslims believe, but He is the emanated Spirit coming from God. The Bible says; The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His nature, upholding all things by His powerful word. After He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high” [Hebrews 1:3]. When we say Satan is the father of lies, it means he is the source of lies, and not the biological father of lies.

The problem of our Muslim brothers is they thought that when God came to the world, He left His abode and brought His whole being to Earth. So when Jesus died there was no more God. But it is not the case, because God is not human which has limited resources. He is extremely vast, He could pour His spirit upon all flesh [Joel 2:28 & Ezekiel 39:29]. He could send His spirit [Isaiah 48:16]. Keep in mind that God is everywhere, He covers the whole universe. In fact, this is the reason why all the heavenly bodies are floating in the empty space because God upholds them [Hebrews 1:3].

Jesus told us that after Him, He will send a Spirit of the Truth (Holy Spirit), He says; “When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, He will testify about Me [John 15:26]. Notice also that Jesus has the power to send a spirit from the Father so he is almighty. This Spirit of Truth will testify about Jesus, but referring to [John 8:18], Jesus is the one who will testify about Himself. He says, I am the one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me bear witness of me. Therefore, the Holy Spirit (Spirit of Truth) to be sent by Jesus is also Himself.  And since Jesus is also the Father [Isaiah 9:6], these three are one _the Trinity. Kindly read the supporting verses;

[Isaiah 9:6] For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

Jesus confirmed this prophesy by telling that He and the Father are one [John 10:30].

[Isaiah 48:16] also prophesies that an ever existent being is sent by the Lord God and His Spirit. It says; “Come near to Me, listen to this: From the first I have not spoken in secret, From the time it took place, I was there. And now the Lord GOD has sent Me, and His Spirit.”

Jesus confirmed this prophesy by telling He came down from Heaven and sent by the Father [John 6:38].

Jesus also said that those who have seen Him, have seen the Father. And He is in the Father and the Father is in Him [John 14:9-10] _implying that He is God Himself for they are one with the Father.

The Trinity are one so they are equal. The arrangement, “the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit” has symbolism. It symbolizes the three significant stages of God’s appearance to mankind. First, the beginning period, in which God introduced Himself to mankind as the creator, Second is the redemption period, in which God introduced Himself to mankind as a savior, And third is the Judgment period, in which God will introduce Himself to mankind as a Judge.

Jesus serves as our purifier, the salvation sent by God [Isaiah 56:1 & Luke 2:29-30]. “Jesus” is an English transliteration of the word ‘Iesus’, a Greek transliteration for Hebrew ‘Yeshua’ which means “God saves” or “Salvation”. Because of His purity, He can purify those who believe His redemptive work and obey His law. Adam and Eve sinned, mankind lost their eternal life [Genesis 3:23] because the penalty of sin is death [Proverbs 10:16 & Romans 6:23]. And this is what we inherited as heirs of Adam and Eve, the death, for we are born sinners [Psalm 51:5 & 58:3]. Mankind can only take back their eternal life by becoming pure again. But who can bring the pure from impure? It is God alone [Job 14:4]. God is holy, His abode is holy, no sinners can enter there [Revelation 21:8]. In Catholic Christians’ view, Muhammad cannot be called holy because he’s a very sinful man (polygamist, murderer, rapist, robber, etc.). He’s one of those who will be thrown into the fiery lake on the Judgment Day.

Prophesies About the Messiah Fulfilled by Jesus

‘Messiah’ is a Hebrew word which means ‘the anointed king’ translated as “Christos” in Greek and ‘Christ’ in English. In Tanakh (Old Testament), God promised His people to send a Messiah so as to save them. The following are some of the prophesies in the Old Testament (maroon-highlighted) about the Messiah or Savior which are fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament (red-highlighted);

1. THE SAVIOR IS A SEED OF A WOMAN

[Genesis 3:15] And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Fulfilled in;

[Matthew 1:20 & Galatians 4:4] But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law 

2. THE SAVIOR IS A DESCENDANT OF ABRAHAM, AND THROUGH HIM ALL FAMILIES AND NATIONS SHALL BE BLESSED 

[Genesis 22:18] Through your descendant all the nations of the earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.

Fulfilled in;

[Galatians 3:16] The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his descendant. Scripture doesn’t say, “descendants,” referring to many, but “your descendant,” referring to one. That descendant is Christ.

[Acts 3:25] You are the descendants of the prophets and the heirs of the promise that God made to our ancestors when he said to Abraham, “Through your descendant all people on earth will be blessed.”

3. A STAR WILL MARCH FORTH OUT OF JACOB (ISRAEL) 

[Numbers 24:17] I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

Fulfilled in;

[Matthew 2:1-2] Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. 

4. GOD WILL RAISE UP A PROPHET LIKE MOSES, A GOD’S SPEAKER 

[Deuteronomy 18:18] “I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto you, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him”

Fulfilled in; 

[Luke 7:16] Fear gripped them all, and they began glorifying God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us!” and, “God has visited His people!”

And also in; 

[John 12:49] “For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak” 

5. THE MESSIAH OR SAVIOR WILL BE BORN TO A VIRGIN WOMAN 

[Isaiah 7:14] Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel

[Matthew 1:23] “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”)

And in;

[Luke 1:35] “How will this be”, Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”. The angel answered, “the Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the Holy one to be born will be called the Son of God” 

6. HE WILL BE BORN IN BETLEHEM

[Micah 5:2] “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”

Fulfilled in;

[Matthew 2:1] After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem. 

7. HE WILL BE DECLARED BY THE FATHER AS HIS SON 

[Psalm 2:7] I will proclaim the Lord’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father

Fulfilled in; 

[Matthew 3:16-17] As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” 

8. THE SALVATION OR SAVIOR WILL DWELL AND BE SEEN ON EARTH

[Psalm 85:9] Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, That glory may dwell in our land.

[Psalm 67:1-2] God be merciful to us and bless us, and cause His face to shine upon us, that Your way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations

Fulfilled in; 

[Luke 2:9-12] And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”

And in; 

[Luke 2:16-17] So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger. When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child. 

And also in;

[Luke 2:29-32] then he took Him into his arms, and blessed God, and said, “Now Lord, You are releasing Your bond-servant to depart in peace, According to Your word; For my eyes have seen Your salvation, Which You have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to Your people Israel.”

9. THE DAY OF SALVATION WILL COME

[Isaiah 49:8] Thus says the LORD, “In a favorable time I have answered You, And in a day of salvation I have helped You; And I will keep You and give You for a covenant of the people, To restore the land, to make them inherit the desolate heritages

Fulfilled in; 

[2 Corinthians 6:2] For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. 

10. HIS OWN FAMILY WILL NOT RECEIVE HIM 

[Psalm 69:8] I am a foreigner to my own family, a stranger to my own mother’s children

Fulfilled in; 

[John 1:11] He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 

11. HE WILL STAY IN THE AREA OF ZEBULUN AND NAPHTALI 

[Isaiah 9:1-2] Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the nations, by the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan—The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.

Fulfilled in; 

[Matthew 4:13-16] Leaving Nazareth, he went and lived in Capernaum, which was by the lake in the area of Zebulun and Naphtali— to fulfill what was said through the prophet Isaiah: “Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles— the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” 

12. THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON THE MESSIAH 

[Isaiah 61:1-2] The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn 

Fulfilled in; 

[Luke 4:17-21] And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written,

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” 

And he rolled up the scroll and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. And he began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing” 

13. HE WILL HEAL THE BLIND, DEAF, MUTE, LAME, AND LEPROUS PEOPLE 

[Isiah 35:5-6] Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy. For waters break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert

Fulfilled in; 

[Luke 7:21] And that very hour He cured many of infirmities, afflictions, and evil spirits; and to many blind He gave sight. 

And in; 

[Matthew 11:4-6] Jesus answered John’s disciples, “Go back, and tell John what you hear and see: Blind people see again, lame people are walking, those with skin diseases are made clean, deaf people hear again, dead people are brought back to life, and poor people hear the Good News. Whoever doesn’t lose his faith in me is indeed blessed.” 

14. HE WILL SPEAK IN PARABLES 

[Psalm 78:2-4] I will open my mouth with a parable; I will utter hidden things, things from of old— things we have heard and known, things our ancestors have told us. We will not hide them from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done

Fulfilled in; 

[Matthew 13:10-13] The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?” He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand” 

15. HE WILL BE A PRIEST AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHISEDEK 

[Psalm 110:4] He will be a priest after the order of Melchisedek.

Fulfilled in; 

[Hebrews 5:6] In another place in Scripture, God said, “You are a priest forever, in the way Melchizedek was a priest.” 

16. HE WILL RECEIVE ALL AUTHORITIES FROM THE FATHER 

[Daniel 7:14] “And to Him was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom, that all the peoples, nations and men of every language might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed”

Fulfilled in;

The Miracles Of Jesus Are Proofs Of His Godhood

Jesus encouraged the people to believe that He and the Father are one, meaning He claimed that He is our God, and His proofs are His miracles because no one could perform them except God. He says in [John 14:11]; “Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves”. The following is a list of His miracles;

1. JESUS TURNED THE WATER INTO WINE [John 2:1-11]

On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there; and both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to Him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does that have to do with us? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.” Now there were six stone waterpots set there for the Jewish custom of purification, containing twenty or thirty gallons each. Jesus said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” So they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, “Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter.” So they took it to him. When the headwaiter tasted the water which had become wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the headwaiter called the bridegroom, and said to him, “Every man serves the good wine first, and when the people have drunk freely, then he serves the poorer wine; but you have kept the good wine until now.” This beginning of His signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory, and His disciples believed in Him.

2. A DYING SON OF A NOBLE MAN WAS HEALED BY JESUS [John 4:46-54]

Therefore He came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water wine. And there was a royal official whose son was sick at Capernaum. When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and was imploring Him to come down and heal his son; for he was at the point of death. So Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you simply will not believe.” The royal official said to Him, “Sir, come down before my child dies.” Jesus said to him, “Go; your son lives.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and started off. As he was now going down, his slaves met him, saying that his son was living. So he inquired of them the hour when he began to get better. Then they said to him, “Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.” So the father knew that it was at that hour in which Jesus said to him, “Your son lives”; and he himself believed and his whole household. This is again a second sign that Jesus performed when He had come out of Judea into Galilee.

3. JESUS HEALED DISABLED PEOPLE

[John 5:1-9]

Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes. In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, [waiting for the moving of the waters; for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.] A man was there who had been ill for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition, He said to him, “Do you wish to get well?” The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I am coming, another steps down before me.” Jesus said to him, “Get up, pick up your pallet and walk.” Immediately the man became well, and picked up his pallet and began to walk. 

[Matthew 9:1-8, Mark 2:1-12, & Luke 5:17-26]

After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

When He had come back to Capernaum several days afterward, it was heard that He was at home. And many were gathered together, so that there was no longer room, not even near the door; and He was speaking the word to them. And they came, bringing to Him a paralytic, carried by four men. Being unable to get to Him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Him; and when they had dug an opening, they let down the pallet on which the paralytic was lying. And Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” But some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, “Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming; who can forgive sins but God alone?” Immediately Jesus, aware in His spirit that they were reasoning that way within themselves, said to them, “Why are you reasoning about these things in your hearts? “Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven’; or to say, ‘Get up, and pick up your pallet and walk’? “But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—He said to the paralytic, “I say to you, get up, pick up your pallet and go home.” And he got up and immediately picked up the pallet and went out in the sight of everyone, so that they were all amazed and were glorifying God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this.” 

[Luke 6:6-11, Matthew 12:9-14, & Mark 3:1-6]

On another Sabbath He entered the synagogue and was teaching; and there was a man there whose right hand was withered. The scribes and the Pharisees were watching Him closely to see if He healed on the Sabbath, so that they might find reason to accuse Him. But He knew what they were thinking, and He said to the man with the withered hand, “Get up and come forward!” And he got up and came forward. And Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the Sabbath, to save a life or to destroy it?” After looking around at them all, He said to him, “Stretch out your hand!” And he did so; and his hand was restored. But they themselves were filled with rage, and discussed together what they might do to Jesus. 

4. JESUS HEALED BORN BLIND PEOPLE

[John 9:1-7]

As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him. “We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work. “While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.” When He had said this, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and applied the clay to his eyes, and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went away and washed, and came back seeing. Therefore the neighbors, and those who previously saw him as a beggar, were saying, “Is not this the one who used to sit and beg?” Others were saying, “This is he,” still others were saying, “No, but he is like him.” He kept saying, “I am the one.” So they were saying to him, “How then were your eyes opened?” He answered, “The man who is called Jesus made clay, and anointed my eyes, and said to me, ‘Go to Siloam and wash’; so I went away and washed, and I received sight.” They said to him, “Where is He?” He said, “I do not know.” 

[Mark 8:22-26]

And they came to Bethsaida. And they brought a blind man to Jesus and implored Him to touch him. Taking the blind man by the hand, He brought him out of the village; and after spitting on his eyes and laying His hands on him, He asked him, “Do you see anything?” And he looked up and said, “I see men, for I see them like trees, walking around.” Then again He laid His hands on his eyes; and he looked intently and was restored, and began to see everything clearly. And He sent him to his home, saying, “Do not even enter the village.”

5. JESUS HEALED A DEAF AND MUTE MAN [Mark 7:31-37]

Again He went out from the region of Tyre, and came through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, within the region of Decapolis. They brought to Him one who was deaf and spoke with difficulty, and they implored Him to lay His hand on him. Jesus took him aside from the crowd, by himself, and put His fingers into his ears, and after spitting, He touched his tongue with the saliva;  and looking up to heaven with a deep sigh, He said to him, “Ephphatha!” that is, “Be opened!”  And his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was removed, and he began speaking plainly. And He gave them orders not to tell anyone; but the more He ordered them, the more widely they continued to proclaim it.  They were utterly astonished, saying, “He has done all things well; He makes even the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”

6. JESUS RAISED DEAD PEOPLE

[John 11:38-44]

Now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was still in the place where Martha met Him. Then the Jews who were with her in the house, and consoling her, when they saw that Mary got up quickly and went out, they followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there. Therefore, when Mary came where Jesus was, she saw Him, and fell at His feet, saying to Him, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.” When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her also weeping, He was deeply moved in spirit and was troubled, and said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to Him, “Lord, come and see.” Jesus wept. So the Jews were saying, “See how He loved him!” But some of them said, “Could not this man, who opened the eyes of the blind man, have kept this man also from dying?”

So Jesus, again being deeply moved within, came to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone was lying against it. Jesus said, “Remove the stone.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to Him, “Lord, by this time there will be a stench, for he has been dead four days.” Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” So they removed the stone. Then Jesus raised His eyes, and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. “I knew that You always hear Me; but because of the people standing around I said it, so that they may believe that You sent Me.” When He had said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth.” The man who had died came forth, bound hand and foot with wrappings, and his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.”

[Luke 7:11-18]

Soon afterwards He went to a city called Nain; and His disciples were going along with Him, accompanied by a large crowd. Now as He approached the gate of the city, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a sizeable crowd from the city was with her. When the Lord saw her, He felt compassion for her, and said to her, “Do not weep.” And He came up and touched the coffin; and the bearers came to a halt. And He said, “Young man, I say to you, arise!” The dead man sat up and began to speak. And Jesus gave him back to his mother. Fear gripped them all, and they began glorifying God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us!” and, “God has visited His people” This report concerning Him went out all over Judea and in all the surrounding district.

7. JESUS PASSED UNSEEN THROUGH A CROWD ATTEMPTING TO MURDER HIM [Luke 4:28-30]

And all the people in the synagogue were filled with rage as they heard these things; and they got up and drove Him out of the city, and led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city had been built, in order to throw Him down the cliff. But passing through their midst, He went His way.

8. JESUS CAUSED HIS DISCIPLES TO CATCH A GREAT QUANTITY OF FISH

[Luke 5:4-11]

When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch.” Simon answered and said, “Master, we worked hard all night and caught nothing, but I will do as You say and let down the nets.” When they had done this, they enclosed a great quantity of fish, and their nets began to break; so they signaled to their partners in the other boat for them to come and help them. And they came and filled both of the boats, so that they began to sink. But when Simon Peter saw that, he fell down at Jesus’ feet, saying, “Go away from me Lord, for I am a sinful man!” For amazement had seized him and all his companions because of the catch of fish which they had taken; and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not fear, from now on you will be catching men.” When they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed Him.

[John 21:4-11]

But when the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. So Jesus said to them, “Children, you do not have any fish, do you?” They answered Him, “No.” And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat and you will find a catch.” So they cast, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish. Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord.” So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put his outer garment on (for he was stripped for work), and threw himself into the sea. But the other disciples came in the little boat, for they were not far from the land, but about one hundred yards away, dragging the net full of fish.

So when they got out on the land, they saw a charcoal fire already laid and fish placed on it, and bread. Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish which you have now caught.” Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not torn.

9. VARIOUS DISEASES WERE HEALED AND DEMONS WERE DRIVEN OUT BY JESUS [Luke 4:38-41, Matt 8:14, & Mark 1:30]

Then He got up and left the synagogue, and entered Simon’s home. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Him to help her. And standing over her, He rebuked the fever, and it left her; and she immediately got up and waited on them.

While the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and laying His hands on each one of them, He was healing them. Demons also were coming out of many, shouting, “You are the Son of God!” But rebuking them, He would not allow them to speak, because they knew Him to be the Christ.

10. JESUS HEALED A CENTURION’S DYING SERVANT [Luke 7:1-10 & Matthew 8:5]

When He had completed all His discourse in the hearing of the people, He went to Capernaum.

And a centurion’s slave, who was highly regarded by him, was sick and about to die. When he heard about Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders asking Him to come and save the life of his servant. When they came to Jesus, they earnestly implored Him, saying, “He is worthy for You to grant this to him; for he loves our nation and it was he who built us our synagogue.” Now Jesus started on His way with them; and when He was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to Him, “Lord, do not trouble Yourself further, for I am not worthy for You to come under my roof; for this reason I did not even consider myself worthy to come to You, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed. “For I also am a man placed under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled at him, and turned and said to the crowd that was following Him, “I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith.” When those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave in good health. 

11. JESUS HEALED A MAN WITH DROPSY ON THE SABBATH [Luke 14:1-6]

It happened that when He went into the house of one of the leaders of the Pharisees on the Sabbath to eat bread, they were watching Him closely. And there in front of Him was a man suffering from dropsy. And Jesus answered and spoke to the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath, or not?” But they kept silent. And He took hold of him and healed him, and sent him away. And He said to them, “Which one of you will have a son or an ox fall into a well, and will not immediately pull him out on a Sabbath day?” And they could make no reply to this.

12. LEPERS WERE HEALED BY JESUS

[Luke 17:11-19]

While He was on the way to Jerusalem, He was passing between Samaria and Galilee. As He entered a village, ten leprous men who stood at a distance met Him; and they raised their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” When He saw them, He said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they were going, they were cleansed. Now one of them, when he saw that he had been healed, turned back, glorifying God with a loud voice, and he fell on his face at His feet, giving thanks to Him. And he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But the nine—where are they? “Was no one found who returned to give glory to God, except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Stand up and go; your faith has made you well.” 

[Mark 1:40-45, Matthew 8:1-4, & Luke 5:12-16]

And a leper came to Jesus, beseeching Him and falling on his knees before Him, and saying, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed. And He sternly warned him and immediately sent him away, and He said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.” But he went out and began to proclaim it freely and to spread the news around, to such an extent that Jesus could no longer publicly enter a city, but stayed out in unpopulated areas; and they were coming to Him from everywhere.

13. JESUS RESTORED THE CUT EAR OF A HIGH PRIEST’ SERVANT [Luke 22:47-53]

While He was still speaking, behold, a crowd came, and the one called Judas, one of the twelve, was preceding them; and he approached Jesus to kiss Him. But Jesus said to him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?” When those who were around Him saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, shall we strike with the sword?” And one of them struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his right ear. But Jesus answered and said, “Stop! No more of this.” And He touched his ear and healed him. Then Jesus said to the chief priests and officers of the temple and elders who had come against Him, “Have you come out with swords and clubs as you would against a robber? “While I was with you daily in the temple, you did not lay hands on Me; but this hour and the power of darkness are yours.” 

14. JESUS FED THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WITH FEW LOAVES OF BREAD AND FEW SMALL FISH

[Matthew 15:32-38 & Mark 8:1-10]

And Jesus called His disciples to Him, and said, “I feel compassion for the people, because they have remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat; and I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way.” The disciples said to Him, “Where would we get so many loaves in this desolate place to satisfy such a large crowd?” And Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” And they said, “Seven, and a few small fish.” And He directed the people to sit down on the ground; and He took the seven loaves and the fish; and giving thanks, He broke them and started giving them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. And they all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, seven large baskets full. And those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children.

[Matthew 14:13-21, Mark 6:30-44, Luke 9:10-17 & John 6:1-15]

As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.” Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat”. “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered. “Bring them here to me,” he said.  And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

15. JESUS CAUSED THE FIG TREE TO WITHER [Matthew 21:18-22 & Mark 11:12-14]

Now in the morning, when He was returning to the city, He became hungry. Seeing a lone fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it except leaves only; and He said to it, “No longer shall there ever be any fruit from you.” And at once the fig tree withered.

Seeing this, the disciples were amazed and asked, “How did the fig tree wither all at once?” And Jesus answered and said to them, “Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ it will happen. “And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” 

16. JESUS CAST OUT DEMONS

[Matthew 12:22-29; Luke 11:14-21]

Then a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute was brought to Jesus, and He healed him, so that the mute man spoke and saw. All the crowds were amazed, and were saying, “This man cannot be the Son of David, can he?” But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “This man casts out demons only by Beelzebul the ruler of the demons.”

And knowing their thoughts Jesus said to them, “Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself will not stand. “If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then will his kingdom stand? “If I by Beelzebul cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? For this reason they will be your judges. “But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. “Or how can anyone enter the strong man’s house and carry off his property, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.

[Mark 1:21-27 & Luke 4:31-36]

They went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and began to teach. They were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, saying, “What business do we have with each other, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!” And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!” Throwing him into convulsions, the unclean spirit cried out with a loud voice and came out of him. They were all amazed, so that they debated among themselves, saying, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.” Immediately the news about Him spread everywhere into all the surrounding district of Galilee. 

[Matthew 15:21-28 & Mark 7:24-30]

Jesus went away from there, and withdrew into the district of Tyre and Sidon. And a Canaanite woman from that region came out and began to cry out, saying, “Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David; my daughter is cruelly demon-possessed.” But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came and implored Him, saying, “Send her away, because she keeps shouting at us.” But He answered and said, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” But she came and began to bow down before Him, saying, “Lord, help me!” And He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” But she said, “Yes, Lord; but even the dogs feed on the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” Then Jesus said to her, “O woman, your faith is great; it shall be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed at once.

[Luke 9:37-43, Matthew 17:14-21, & Mark 9:14-29]

On the next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met Him. And a man from the crowd shouted, saying, “Teacher, I beg You to look at my son, for he is my only boy, and a spirit seizes him, and he suddenly screams, and it throws him into a convulsion with foaming at the mouth; and only with difficulty does it leave him, mauling him as it leaves. “I begged Your disciples to cast it out, and they could not.” And Jesus answered and said, “You unbelieving and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you and put up with you? Bring your son here.” While he was still approaching, the demon slammed him to the ground and threw him into a convulsion. But Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the boy and gave him back to his father. And they were all amazed at the greatness of God. 

17. JESUS CAST OUT LEGION OF DEMONS [Matthew 8:28-34 & Mark 5:1-20]

When He came to the other side into the country of the Gadarenes, two men who were demon-possessed met Him as they were coming out of the tombs. They were so extremely violent that no one could pass by that way. And they cried out, saying, “What business do we have with each other, Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?” Now there was a herd of many swine feeding at a distance from them. The demons began to entreat Him, saying, “If You are going to cast us out, send us into the herd of swine.” And He said to them, “Go!” And they came out and went into the swine, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea and perished in the waters. The herdsmen ran away, and went to the city and reported everything, including what had happened to the demoniacs. And behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus; and when they saw Him, they implored Him to leave their region. 

18. JESUS HEALED A WOMAN WITH INFIRMITY CAUSED BY SATAN [Luke 13:11-17]

And there was a woman who for eighteen years had had a sickness caused by a spirit; and she was bent double, and could not straighten up at all.  When Jesus saw her, He called her over and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your sickness.” And He laid His hands on her; and immediately she was made erect again and began glorifying God.  But the synagogue official, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, began saying to the crowd in response, “There are six days in which work should be done; so come during them and get healed, and not on the Sabbath day.”  But the Lord answered him and said, “You hypocrites, does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the stall and lead him away to water him?  “And this woman, a daughter of Abraham as she is, whom Satan has bound for eighteen long years, should she not have been released from this bond on the Sabbath day?” As He said this, all His opponents were being humiliated; and the entire crowd was rejoicing over all the glorious things being done by Him. 

19. JESUS STOPPED A STORM AND SURGING WAVES [Matthew 8:23-27, Mark 4:35-41, & Luke 8:22-25]

On that day, when evening came, He said to them, “Let us go over to the other side.” Leaving the crowd, they took Him along with them in the boat, just as He was; and other boats were with Him. And there arose a fierce gale of wind, and the waves were breaking over the boat so much that the boat was already filling up. Jesus Himself was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” And He got up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Hush, be still.” And the wind died down and it became perfectly calm. And He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” They became very much afraid and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?” 

20. JESUS HEALED A BLEEDING WOMAN AND RESURRECTED JAIRUS’ DAUGHTER [Mark 5:21-43, Luke 8:40-56, & Matthew 9:18-26]

When Jesus had crossed over again in the boat to the other side, a large crowd gathered around Him; and so He stayed by the seashore. One of the synagogue officials named Jairus came up, and on seeing Him, fell at His feet and implored Him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death; please come and lay Your hands on her, so that she will get well and live.” And He went off with him; and a large crowd was following Him and pressing in on Him.

A woman who had had a hemorrhage for twelve years, and had endured much at the hands of many physicians, and had spent all that she had and was not helped at all, but rather had grown worse—after hearing about Jesus, she came up in the crowd behind Him and touched His cloak. For she thought, “If I just touch His garments, I will get well.” Immediately the flow of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction. Immediately Jesus, perceiving in Himself that the power proceeding from Him had gone forth, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My garments?” And His disciples said to Him, “You see the crowd pressing in on You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’” And He looked around to see the woman who had done this. But the woman fearing and trembling, aware of what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace and be healed of your affliction.”

While He was still speaking, they came from the house of the synagogue official, saying, “Your daughter has died; why trouble the Teacher anymore?” But Jesus, overhearing what was being spoken, said to the synagogue official, “Do not be afraid any longer, only believe.” And He allowed no one to accompany Him, except Peter and James and John the brother of James. They came to the house of the synagogue official; and He saw a commotion, and people loudly weeping and wailing. And entering in, He said to them, “Why make a commotion and weep? The child has not died, but is asleep.” They began laughing at Him. But putting them all out, He took along the child’s father and mother and His own companions, and entered the room where the child was. Taking the child by the hand, He said to her, “Talitha kum!” (which translated means, “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”). Immediately the girl got up and began to walk, for she was twelve years old. And immediately they were completely astounded. And He gave them strict orders that no one should know about this, and He said that something should be given her to eat. 

21. JESUS WALKED ON THE SEA [John 6:16-21, Matthew 14:22-27, & Mark 6:46-52]

Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, and after getting into a boat, they started to cross the sea to Capernaum. It had already become dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. The sea began to be stirred up because a strong wind was blowing. Then, when they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near to the boat; and they were frightened. But He said to them, “It is I; do not be afraid.” So they were willing to receive Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going. 

22. JESUS TRANSFIGURED [Matthew 17:1-8 & Mark 9:2-8]

Six days later Jesus took with Him Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up on a high mountain by themselves. And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, I will make three tabernacles here, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” While he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said, “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!” When the disciples heard this, they fell face down to the ground and were terrified. And Jesus came to them and touched them and said, “Get up, and do not be afraid.” And lifting up their eyes, they saw no one except Jesus Himself alone. 

23. JESUS CHRIST RESURRECTED [John 20:11-18 & Luke 24:6-7]

But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb; and she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying. And they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.” When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing Him to be the gardener, she said to Him, “Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will take Him away.” Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to Him in Hebrew, “Rabboni!” (which means, Teacher). Jesus said to her, “Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.’” Mary Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord,” and that He had said these things to her. 

24. JESUS ASCENDED TO HEAVEN [Luke 24:50-52] 

When He had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up His hands and blessed them, while He was blessing them, He left them and was taken up into Heaven, then they worshipped Him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. 

25. PETER HEALED A LAME IN JESUS NAME [Acts 3:2-8] 

And a man lame from birth was being carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple that is called the Beautiful Gate to ask alms of those entering the temple … But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!”. And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. And leaping up he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God. 

26. PETER RAISED DORCAS OF JOPPA [Acts 9:36-41]

In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which is translated as Dorcas),c who was always occupied with works of kindness and charity. At that time, however, she became sick and died, and her body was washed and placed in an upper room. Since Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples heard that Peter was there and sent two men to urge him, “Come to us without delay.” So Peter got up and went with them. On his arrival, they took him to the upper room. All the widows stood around him, weeping and showing him the tunics and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them. Then Peter sent them all out of the room. He knelt down and prayed, and turning toward her body, he said, “Tabitha, get up!” She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter, she sat up. Peter took her by the hand and helped her up. Then he called the saints and widows and presented her to them alive. 

27. THE APOSTLES PERFORMED MANY MIRACLES BY FAITH IN JESUS [Acts 5:12-16]

The people saw the apostles perform many miracles and do amazing things. The believers had a common faith in Jesus as they met on Solomon’s Porch. None of the other people dared to join them, although everyone spoke highly of them. More men and women than ever began to believe in the Lord. As a result, people carried their sick into the streets. They placed them on stretchers and cots so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some sick people as he went by. Crowds from the cities around Jerusalem would gather. They would bring their sick and those who were troubled by evil spirits, and each person was cured. 

28. PAUL DROVE OFF AN EVIL SPIRIT FROM A WOMAN IN THE NAME OF JESUS [Acts 16:16-18] 

One day when we were going to the place of prayer, a female servant met us. She was possessed by an evil spirit that told fortunes. She made a lot of money for her owners by telling fortunes. She used to follow Paul and shout, “These men are servants of the Most High God. They’re telling you how you can be saved.” She kept doing this for many days. Paul became annoyed, turned to the evil spirit, and said, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her!” As Paul said this, the evil spirit left her.

29. PAUL HEALED A LAME MAN [Acts 14:8-11] 

A man who was born lame was in Lystra. He was always sitting because he had never been able to walk. He listened to what Paul was saying. Paul observed him closely and saw that the man believed he could be made well. So Paul said in a loud voice, “Stand up.” The man jumped up and began to walk. The crowds who saw what Paul had done shouted in the Lycaonian language, “The gods have come to us, and they look human.” 

30. PAUL HEALED PUBLIUS’ FATHER AND OTHER SICK PEOPLE [Acts 28:7-9] 

A man named Publius, who was the governor of the island, had property around the area. He welcomed us and treated us kindly, and for three days we were his guests. His father happened to be sick in bed. He was suffering from fever and dysentery. Paul went to him, prayed, placed his hands on him, and made him well. After that had happened, other sick people on the island went to Paul and were made well. 

31. PAUL CAUSED AN ANNOYING  PERSON TO BECOME BLIND [Acts 13:8-12] 

Elymas, whose name means [astrologer], opposed them and tried to distort the meaning of the faith so that the governor wouldn’t believe. But Saul, also known as Paul, was filled with the Holy Spirit. He stared at Elymas and said, “You are full of dirty tricks and schemes, you son of the devil! You hate everything that has God’s approval. Quit trying to distort the truth about the way the Lord wants people to live. The Lord is against you now. For a while you will be blind, unable to see the light of day.” Suddenly, Elymas couldn’t see a thing. He tried to find people to lead him. When the governor saw what had happened, he believed. 

32. PAUL RESURRECTED  A YOUNG MAN [Acts 20:9-12] 

A young man named Eutychus was sitting in a window. As Paul was talking on and on, Eutychus was gradually falling asleep. Finally, overcome by sleep, he fell from the third story and was dead when they picked him up.  Paul went to him, took him into his arms, and said, “Don’t worry! He’s alive!” Then Eutychus went upstairs again, broke the bread, and ate. Paul talked with the people for a long time, until sunrise, and then left. The people took the boy home. They were greatly relieved that he was alive.

RENZ PEJANA (Catholic) VS. BOY BAUTISTA (Born Again) DEBATE

Boy Bautista

I am a Catholic and throw all statue or Saints devotion or worship, I stop praying Hail Mary because , Mary is not God. I only call God the Father , Holy Spirit ant Jesus the Son od God and the Messiah. .

Renz @Boy Bautista, If you are really Catholic, you should have known the role of statues in Catholicism. Images and Saints are not worshiped in Catholicism, reverence and worship are not the same. We can ask help from Saints so that God will have mercy on us and be admitted to Heaven. Mary is the mother of Jesus, most probably Jesus cannot refuse her if she will request Him to include you in Heaven. Images are just expressions of the Catholics’ love and faith in God and his Saints. If you hold a picture of your loved one and kiss it, will you commit the sin of idolatry? Jesus and His apostles teach us to worship God in spirit (mind and heart), whether you use images or not, as long as your mind and heart are directed to God above. Psalm 2:12 commands us, ”Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him”.  If you want to kiss God, how can you express it if He’s originally a spirit or unapproachable light? Let’s not understand the Bible by picking two or three verses only, let’s understand the Bible by its context. We should also use our common sense. God said His words do not change, and His founded kingdom is for everlasting, and it cannot be overcome by the gates of hell. To accuse the Catholicism of corrupting the Church is the same as accusing God that He’s lying. Of all the religions, it is only the Catholicism that can defend their Faith.

Boy Bautista  @Renz , Mary and all other saints cannot hear your prayers because they’re all dead. If truly you don’t worship those images, take them down from the altar, because altar is for God only. And you are kneeling down before those images, and the images will remain in your subconscious as you continue worshiping even with closed eyes.

Renz @Boy Bautista, not all people died, for example Enoch and Elijah did not experience death [2 kings 2:11 & Hebrews 11:5]. And not all dead are asleep because Abel though he was dead, he could still speak to God because of his faith, kindly read;

[Hebrews 11:4] “By faith Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous when God gave approval to his gifts. And by faith he still speaks, even though he is dead.”

As I had said in the previous, we should understand the Bible not by only one or few verses, we should understand its context. The image is not really the issue of God’s hatred, but because people were worshiping gods other than Him. I think you are not familiar about the Ark of the Covenant. In (Exodus 25: 18), God instructed Moses to make two gold cherubim [Cherubim is pl. form of Cherub means angel statue] and placed them over the Ark of the Covenant. Then He commanded the Israelites to pray or request before that Ark. Joshua fell and prayed before that ark, and the Lord answered him (Joshua 7:6-11). Even King David held a feast for the Ark of the Covenant with the two cherubim over it (2 Samuel 6: 15, 19). He sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings before it, he was dancing and leaping with all his might before it (2 Samuel 6: 13, 14). David was despised by his wife Michal for what he had done, so the Lord closed her womb (2 Samuel 6: 16, 20, 23). What Michal did is comparable to what the non-Catholics are doing today who despise the Catholics for celebrating a feast and dance before a holy image. King Solomon made Cherubim too under the instruction of God and placed them in the inner sanctuary of God’s Temple (1 Kings 6: 23-27). God also instructed Moses to make a bronze statue of snake, and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, he lived (Numbers 21: 8-9). Therefore, God does not prohibit the people to revere or use an image devoted to Him and His kingdom, as in the case of Micah’s carved silver image (Judges 17: 3). Judges chapter 18 tells about Micah’s carved silver image which was brought by Danites when they attacked Laish, and God let them conquered Laish.

Boy Bautista  @Renz , Then, why you don’t have Patron Saint Enoch and Patron Saint Elijah? Besides, your reasoning did not raise Mary from the dead. Have you not seen the Cherub in the Ark of Covenant? They are facing each other, not facing the people. None like them in the Catholic churches all over the world. Your images are clearly dead idols (I know it as I was with it for 30 years). No idolaters can enter the kingdom of God (Revelation 21:8). You must acknowledge that you are sinner and need a savior from heaven and ask Jesus Christ to come-in into your life as Lord & Savior. That’s it, no transferring of religion, just come to Jesus Christ in prayer.

Renz  @Boy Bautista

: You are funny, the issue here is the worshiper facing the image, and not the image facing the worshiper. If you try to argue that it was permissible by God to pray before the carved cherubim because they were facing sideward, then a worshiper can easily avoid the sin of idolatry, all he has to do is to turn his face towards the side of the image. So your reasoning is inconsistent.

: In (John 21:25), Apostle John says that there are still many works of Jesus which are not written down. And beside the Bible, we should also use our common sense. If Jesus could bring a criminal to His paradise [Luke 23:43], how much more his own mother? Mary is certainly in Jesus’ paradise. Moreover, there are many people around the world claiming that holy Mary appeared to them.

: Enoch and Elijah were born long time before Christianity, therefore, the Catholic Church is not in the position to declare them as holy. Besides they are already in paradise, there is no need for them to be canonized.

: Saints or holy people although they are dead, are not asleep, they are with Jesus. Kindly read;

[Revelation 6:10] And they cried out in a loud voice, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge those who live on the earth and avenge our blood?”

: No Catholic that will say his God is the image that he faces while praying. All Catholics know that their God is spirit and in Heaven. Whether you face an image or not in praying, God will judge us by our mind and heart, and not by gesture or food. Instead of accusing the Catholics, you better examine your own religion because your religion is only good at accusing but cannot defend its own doctrine.

Boy Bautista  @Renz , You obviously did not see the cherubs at the Arc of Covenant, they are facing each other closely with both wings touching each other, you cannot go in between and worship one of them. Besides, it is absolutely not permissible to worship any form of image in behalf of God. Religion is business, true Christianity is not religion but personal relationship with the Savior – knowing each other intimately.

Renz  @Boy Bautista, I have seen it. In fact before I bring up comments, I checked them first. However the issue is not the positioning of the images, but the Catholicism is accused by Christian sects for committing idolatry because they use images in their worship method. Images are just regarded holy and not worshiped in Catholicism. Christian sects always used [Exodus 20:4-5] to justify their accusation. Let us read these passages starting from verse 3 for us to have a better understanding;

3You shall have no other gods before Me.

4You shall not make for yourself an idol of any kind, or an image of anything in the heavens above, on the earth beneath, or in the waters below.

5You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on their children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me

COMMENT: in verse 3, God begins his commandment by saying, “you shall have no other gods before Me”. The issue here is not really the images themselves, but people who worshiped other gods (like Molech, Golden calf, Asherah, Baal, Bel, Amon, Dagon, Tammuz, Zeus, Hermes, Artemis, and many others). Why God hated these images? Because these were the images of gods that the Israelites worshiped. The Catholicism is the owner of the Holy Scriptures, so they know better than all rebellious groups.

: One of the purposes of God to send Jesus to the world was to found His Church. Jesus said to Simon Peter, “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” (Mt. 16: 19). So if we want eternal lives, we need to be bound by this Church or religion. God only found one Church for eternity. Those Churches which are founded by mere men are not authorized by God. How come these groups can enter the kingdom of Heaven?

Boy Bautista  @Renz , you don’t worship them? Why kiss them and bow down before them? “5You shall not bow down to them”. You are bowing down before them, bowing down is an act of worship… that is clear. The Catholicism did not own the Holy Scriptures, in fact, all of them were written by Hebrews not even a single Roman writer. The “key” of the kingdom is Jesus Christ himself and the church is every person having the Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit living in them NOT the church/religion made by men. RC was founded by Emperor Constantine in Constantinople – now Istanbul. The church founded by Jesus Christ is his creation not the creation of people. How to enter God’s kingdom? Please read John 3:5 and Matthew 18:3. If you really own the Holy Scriptures, you should have written: “You must be a Catholic to enter God’s kingdom”, but instead, you wrote” “You must be born again” – John 3:7.

Renz  @Boy Bautista

A. If we kiss something, it doesn’t mean we worship that something. If you kiss the hand of your grandpa it doesn’t mean you worship him, but you respect him. If you kiss your wife, it doesn’t mean you worship her, but you love her. If you bow to a being it doesn’t always mean you worship that being, it can also mean you revere or honor that being. If a Japanese bow to you, it doesn’t mean he worships you, but he respects you. And this what a Catholic is doing, he shows his love, respect, and reverence to God or Saints by kissing and bowing to their images.

B. It appears that you have no knowledge about the History of the Roman Catholic Church. The earliest Christian Church in Rome was not founded by Romans or an emperor, but by Peter and Paul (the Hebrews who owned the Scriptures).

A BRIEF HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY

In 32 A.D. after the ascension of Jesus Christ, the apostles spread the good news initially from Jerusalem throughout the Roman Empire. In Rome, the apostle Simon Peter together with Paul established the Church which Jesus Christ told to Simon Peter, “and I tell you that you are peter [“peter” derived from Greek “petros” means rock], and on this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it” (Mt. 16: 18). In the year 107, St. Ignatius of Antioch named this Christian Faith as the Catholic Church [catholic derived from Greek katholikos means universal]. It became the state religion by Armenia in 301; Georgia in 319; and in the year 380, Theodocius 1 declared this Faith as the official religion in Rome. It is only the Catholic Church that can trace their root to Jesus.

C. Jesus is not the key himself, but He holds the keys of the kingdom. “Key” means authority, and Jesus assigned these authorities of the kingdom to Peter alone. So the notion that you can go to Heaven by yourself or by another church is false. Try to examine yourself if you have the capability to fly into Jesus’ abode. It is only by the power of Jesus that we can be transported to Heaven. Therefore, we must follow Jesus’ instructions and should not be isolated from His Church. The kingdom of God is not His creation because this creation will vanish like smoke (Isaiah 51:6 & 34:4). The Church (body of people) is the kingdom itself, Jesus preached about this kingdom (Matthew 9:35). Jesus is the head of the Church or king of the kingdom. Unknown to many, the said kingdom of Heaven is the Catholic Church which was established on Earth by Jesus (Matthew 16:18) and this will continue forever or in the afterlife, kindly read the verses below;

1. [Daniel 2:44] “At the time of those kings, the God of heaven will establish a kingdom that will never be destroyed. No other people will be permitted to rule it. It will smash all the other kingdoms and put an end to them. And it will be established forever”

2. [1 Chronicles 22:10] ‘He shall build a house for My name, and he shall be My son and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’

3. [Matthew 16:18] “I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.

4. [Matthew 9:35] Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.

5. [Revelation 5:10] You have made them into a kingdom, priests to serve our God, and they will reign upon the earth.”

D. The baptism is only your entrance to the Church, You cannot be saved by being baptized alone. But you must believe that Jesus is your savior besides obeying the law For there is no salvation if we are not justified by faith aside from obeying the law [Romans 3:28]. Without faith in the salvation provided by Christ, we will all perish [Isaiah 51:6 & Luke 13:3].

E. You don’t need to look for a “Catholic” word in the Bible as proof of Catholicism. All you have to do is to trace back the origin of Catholicism if it can connect to Peter. The Catholic Church has so much evidence to show their authenticity.

F. To find the name of your church in the Bible is not a basis of authenticity, The New Testament was written in the first century, and your church was established in the 19th century (1,900 years gap). Anyone can found his own church and copy its name from the Bible, and claim that this church is the truth. This is also the ploy of “Iglesia ni Cristo” claiming that their church is the truth because it is found in the Filipino Bible.

Boy Bautista  @Renz You are kneeling down before those idols, you talk to them directly in prayers, I know it because I was a devoted Catholic for 30 years. Peter and Paul were killed by the Roman Catholics, please check your history. The rock is Jesus not Peter, please review your hermeneutics.

John 14:6 Jesus said, I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE, no one comes to the Father except through me. He is the WORD. He is the DOOR, He is the KEY. There is no “keys” that is in plural form, only one key that is JESUS CHRIST alone. Your keys CANNOT open the DOOR in heaven. The true CHURCH is not the religious organizations making money and grabbing political power and invented many “keys” to heaven but the heart of individual person that received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and Confirmed/Sealed by the Holy Spirit. Iglesia ni Cristo is another cult of Filipino version. But, RC has more chances to come to Jesus than INC and Eli Soriano’s Dating Daan, they’re deeply inverted by twisted doctrine.

Renz  @Boy Bautista

1. Again, kneeling down before something is not always an act of worship. If an adulterous husband kneels down before his wife to ask for forgiveness, it doesn’t mean he worships her. If a Christian mentions Saints in his prayer, does it mean he worship them? If a child pleads his parents to give him new shoes, does it mean he worship his parents? As I had said, God examines our faith in spirit, not in our gestures or food we eat. A Christian only pleads the Saints for intercession or to ask help, pleading is not worship. Catholic Church never teaches its believers to worship idols. If indeed you were a devout Catholic in the past, you should have known that images were just symbols, and not gods.

2. Peter and Paul were killed by Roman pagans not Catholics, you are lying if not ignorant of the history. In fact, the name Catholic was not yet used by the time of Peter and Paul, use your common sense.

3. “Rock” has several meanings in the Bible, it can mean strength, fortress, refuge, shield, or foundation. God is called rock because He is the fortress or refuge of the people, kindly read;

[Psalm 18:2] “The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my Savior, my God, my rock in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the strength of my salvation, my stronghold”

Simon is called peter or rock because he is the foundation of the Church. When we build a house, we need to lay a rock or foundation on the ground first.

4. You don’t understand, I was pointing about the keys of the kingdom which were given by Jesus to Peter (Matthew 16:18). And these keys are not literal, they mean authorities. There is no such thing as “Jesus is the key” in the Bible, you are inventing a verse. You know what, Churches founded by mere men are given to lying because they cannot defend their doctrines. “Door” and “key” definitely are not synonymous. “Door” is the opening thru which we enter a house or kingdom, while “key” is a piece used to open or close a locker. If we say Jesus is the key, it implies that we use Jesus as our key to Heaven which is illogical! Jesus holds the key(s) and not the key Himself, verses about Jesus who holds the keys;

[Isaiah 22:22] “Then I will set the key of the house of David on his shoulder, When he opens no one will shut, When he shuts no one will open.

[Revelation 1:18] “the Living One. I was dead, and behold, now I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of Death and of Hades”

5. The Catholic Church never ask a 10% from the income of the people. During Mass, it is okay for the Church if a believer give just a peso or none. How can non-Catholics accuse the Catholic Church for making them poor? Italy is predominantly Catholic but they are not poor. And what power of the Government that the Catholic Church grab? Have you heard a position of the government that is held by a Bishop? These accusations by non-Catholics are baseless. I sense that rebellious churches keep inventing stories to topple the Catholic Church. But as Jesus said, to attack this Church is like kicking against the prick (Acts 26:14). Catholics are now 1.3 Billions, the biggest of all the religions of the world. This is what Jesus had promised to Peter, that the gates of hell (other religions) cannot prevail His Church. God laid down steps in the Bible for people to know how to enter the kingdom of Heaven. But people like your group are disposed to rebel and make their own teachings. Saint Paul already predicted this rebellion or apostasy in his epistles, he says;

[2 Timothy 4:3-4] “for the time is coming when men will not endure sound teaching. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths”

6. God says His Covenant brought by Jesus is everlasting, so there will be no more Church to be founded. He says that the kingdom founded by Jesus on Earth is for eternity, so the Catholic Church or kingdom of Jesus will be the kingdom in Heaven. Let us remember that God’s mind and words do not change, kindly read;

[Numbers 23:19] “God is not like people. He tells no lies. He is not like humans. He doesn’t change his mind. When he says something, he does it. When he makes a promise, he keeps it.”

Boy Bautista  @Renz , Even having an image on altar is already idolatry how much more when you kneel down before them. Not worshiping? You are lying to yourself. Roman Catholicism is paganism from the very start up to now. Roman Catholicism killed millions of Christians and Jews, there is no way that religious group is of God. Look at the lives of the majority of RC members, they are living in sinful lives, true Christians must be living in holy lives – you are not.

Jesus is the everything. He is the creator of heaven and earth (John 1:1-3). Jesus is not something literal or physical, He is the Almighty God, the perfect face of the Father. Jesus is the kingdom, the door, the way, the key, the secret code, the truth, the eternal life, he is sovereign God. Narrow is the way to heaven and only few coming to, but wide is the way to hell and many are going to: 1.3 billion from RC and more billions from other groups. You can think it further and deeper, you can come to Jesus personally, talk to Him seriously and ask Him what is really the truth. I will never ask to join my group, but, I will ask you to come to Jesus Christ personally, He is the Savior not my group.

Renz  @Boy Bautista

You are so ignorant of the history, the Romans who killed Jews and Christians were not Catholics.

If Jesus says He is the “door”, it means He is our way/path to the Father. If the Bible says “God is everything”, it means He can do everything, it does not mean that His being is everything. For God is definitely not an object, planet, building, airplane, space, animal, etc.. My goodness! God is not a kingdom Himself, where did you get this learning? Your church teach you falsehood. God is called a king because He has a kingdom. A kingdom is composed of a king, area, and subjects. In the Old Testament, God keeps telling that He will establish a kingdom on Earth for eternity. He will install His Son as king. This kingdom is composed of King Jesus, the 12 apostles as judges, priests, and people. Whoever enters this kingdom thru other gate is a thief (John 10:1-2). When I said that the Catholics are 1.3 Billions, I did not mean all of them can make it to Heaven. As I had said, baptism alone cannot save us. We need to believe that Jesus is our Lord and Savior plus obeying the law. Brother, you are the one who needs enlightenment by Jesus. Ask him personally what’s the real truth about Him. Certainly He will answer you, “I am not a kingdom, a key, or code, and leave your church for they are teaching you falsehood”.

Boy Bautista  @Renz , Jesus is the key in the house of David, he is also the only door, he is also the way upon entering the door into the kingdom, he is also the kingdom that has no bounds. You should know who Jesus is, he is the Almighty God. The church is the person having the Holy Spirit NOT the church per your understanding that are making money and grabbing political power like the Rome, etc. Italy is now predominantly atheist and their economy is collapsing following Greece.

Renz @Boy Bautista

1. Man, don’t make any perception that is not mentioned in the Bible, it would only make your mind more confused. And also God cannot be an instrument Himself, it’s inconsistent. Furthermore, when you make a claim from the Bible, put forward a verse to back up your claims. For nowhere in the Bible that says Jesus is the key in the house of David. “Holding the key” and “the Key Himself” are not synonymous. The Bible teaches that Jesus holds the key of the house of David, here read;

[Isaiah 22:22] “I will place on his shoulder the key of the house of David. What he opens, no one can shut; what he shuts, no one can open”

[Revelation 3:7] “To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These are the words of the One who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What He opens, no one will shut; and what He shuts, no one will open”

2. Again you’re inventing stories. Italy is 88% Catholic, the growth of other religion and atheism is mostly caused by migrants: https://themediaproject.org/news/2018/6/11/italys-new-government-and-the-catholic-church-increasingly-at-odds-over-migrant-crisis

Italy’s economy ranks no. 8 in the world although she experienced crisis, definitely this country is not poor: http://statisticstimes.com/economy/projected-world-gdp-ranking.php

Boy Bautista  @Renz , you already said that is not material but spiritual, you are confused. You need to come to Jesus, don’t stay with Mary or else you shall never arrive with Jesus.

you already said that it is spiritual not physical, why are you confused? You cannot limit what God can do. Italians still claiming Catholics but don’t go to church anymore.

the Isaiah 22:22 is prophetically referring to Jesus, but, RC is claiming to have the authority in lieu of Jesus thus RC is basically an Anti-Christ. Anti-Christ is not against Christ but claiming to be the salvation, has the keys of salvation. Christ is the key, and the salvation. The key is the way to open the door of salvation. Only Jesus can do that. Only Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, from the beginning to end He is God

there is no other means to salvation. His name is Salvation, Savior, Yeshua, Jesus, Christ, Messiah, etc. There is no Mary in the path to heaven.

Renz  @Boy Bautista

1. Don’t go around your mistake, admit it _that Jesus is not the kingdom or the key Himself so that you will learn. Either God meant literal or spiritual, it is illogical to say that Jesus is the kingdom or key Himself. You cannot learn if you don’t know how to accept mistakes. And also you mentioned that the church is the person having the holy Spirit. We can have many churches by your definition because there are many persons who have the holy Spirit. Jesus established only one church. The word “church” is a translation of the Greek word ekklesia, which is defined as “an assembly” or “called-out ones.” The root meaning of church is not that of a building, but body of people.

2. Yes, [Isaiah 22:22] is referring to Jesus, but Jesus pass this key or authority to Peter (the head of Catholicism);

[Matthew 16:19] I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

See? The Catholic Church has the authority. It is sad to say that your church has no authority from Jesus. No permit, and yet you claim that your church is the truth. You better ponder about this fact. Or else Jesus will call you a thief for you try to enter the Kingdom of Heaven other than its gate.

Boy Bautista @Renz , the many churches that are people living holy lives is called the body of Christ (you can read it in Corinthians) . I never seen a single Catholic person living holy life simply because of wrong teachings. You need to accept Jesus Christ first as Lord & Savior by faith in order to see Him. That is called born again experience (John 3:3), because no matter how I tell you, you can never see nor understand who Jesus is until Jesus himself will reveal it to you personally.

Renz @Boy Bautista Where in the Corinthians? There are 1 & 2 Corinthians, and what verse? After telling Jesus is a key or kingdom, you now have another claim. How did you know that no Catholic lives a holy life? Are you God who knows the inner part of a person? Don’t you know that “holy” means sinless or perfect? Is there any perfect man except Jesus? Are you perfect? You are a joke. After you showed to me your ignorance of the Bible and history, you have the cheekiness to declare that Jesus personally revealed to the Born Again believers the understanding, and this is called Born Again experience, Wow!

But why you are ignorant Biblically and historically? Are you sure it was Jesus who revealed to you that understanding? Because Jesus knows everything but His Born Again people are ignorant. You know what, the Bible says those people who cannot understand are evil;

[Proverbs 28:5] “Evil people do not understand judgment, but those who seek the LORD comprehend fully”

[John 8:47] “Whoever belongs to God hears the words of God. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”

Furthermore, we cannot be saved by just believing the saving work of Jesus alone. It should be faith plus obedience of the law;

[Romans 3:28] “For there is no salvation if we are not justified by faith aside from obeying the law”

IF I WERE YOU, LEAVE THAT CULT SO THAT YOU WILL BE ENLIGHTENED BY THE TRUE GOD.

Boy Bautista @Renz , Romans 3:28 King James Version (KJV) 28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. hhhmm… it is without the law, you are twisting the word of God.

Renz @Boy Bautista. Numerous translators translated that way;

New International Version
For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.

English Standard Version
For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law.

Berean Study Bible
For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.

New American Standard Bible 
For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.

Christian Standard Bible
For we conclude that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.

Weymouth New Testament
For we maintain that it is as the result of faith that a man is held to be righteous, apart from actions done in obedience to Law.

World English Bible
We maintain therefore that a man is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.

Young’s Literal Translation
therefore do we reckon a man to be declared righteous by faith, apart from works of law.

LET US BE HONEST, IN YOUR OPINION, CAN YOU BELIEVE IN GOD WITHOUT DOING HIS LAW? WHY DON’T YOU KILL OR RAPE, ISN’T IT BECAUSE YOU ARE DOING HIS COMMANDMENT?

The book of Romans (KJV) concluded that the law should not be made void;

[Romans 3:31] Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

THE BOOK OF JAMES CONFIRMS THAT FAITH WITHOUT DEEDS IS WORTHLESS;

James 2:18
But someone will say, “You have faith and I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.

James 2:20
O foolish man, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is worthless?

James 2:24
As you can see, a man is justified by his deeds and not by faith alone.

SEE? THE ABOVE VERSES WERE MAIN REASONS WHY MARTIN LUTHER WANTED TO EXCLUDE THE BOOK OF JAMES FROM HIS OWN BIBLE VERSION.

Boy Bautista @Renz , 1 Corinthians 12:12 King James Version (KJV) 12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

Renz @Boy Bautista So what about this verse? It confirms my previous statements that the Church is a body of people.

Boy Bautista @Renz , I was a Catholic and still surrounded by Catholics, I never seen even one not living in sins. By their fowl words, vices, and image worship. While the real born-again Christians are full of praise and thanksgiving to God and good words and good works. Yet, our holiness and righteousness were not earned but imputed to us by Jesus Christ.

Renz @Boy Bautista So you are living in a sinless life now, how sure are you? You know what, whatever your Church does, it does not matter to God, it is useless because you rebelled from His Church, You are not belong to God anymore. You made your own gate to Heaven rather than the gate made by Christ on Peter. Saint Paul predicted already the people like you;

[2 Timothy 4:3] For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,

Here in my place, the priests keep holding masses every day from dawn to evening, the Catholics around me are worshiping God warmly. They don’t keep attacking another religions. They are brave, they spread the Gospel even the most dangerous Muslim area. But you (born again), do not, you take your converts from Catholics, investing their children, poisoning their minds that Catholic are worshiping images. You don’t go to dangerous area because you are afraid (weak faith). You just wait when an area become Catholic, And then you enter there, poisoning the products of Catholics. 

Boy Bautista @Renz , “the gate made by Christ on Peter”, you created your own gate with your out of context interpretation. Jesus said, “thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my church”. He’s referring to himself the rock of all ages, existed from everlasting to everlasting. Jesus did not said, “I will build my church upon Peter”.

Renz @Boy Bautista It shows that you are not aware of the origin of the name, “Peter”. It originated from the Greek word, “petros” which means rock. Peter’s previous name was Simon, Jesus called him as rock or Petros because He made him the foundation of His Church. In other word, Jesus said to Simon, “you are rock and on this rock I will build my Church”

Boy Bautista @Renz, a body of people without the Holy Spirit living in them cannot become a church that is holy dwelling place of God. They are basically categorized as cult, RC is a cult.

Renz @ Boy Bautista, Wrong, the Church was already built by Jesus on Simon Peter, how can you say the Church of God cannot become a church? The Church (body of people) is not the dwelling place of God, but His kingdom founded on Earth for eternity. What is more cult, the group that can connect its origin to Peter, or the group that can connect only its origin to Martin Luther?

Boy Bautista @Renz, Romans 10:17 King James Version (KJV) 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Renz @Boy Bautista your KJV teaches you already that the law should not be made void through faith (Romans 3:31), and faith is worthless without deeds (James 2:20). So you better don’t propose a verse anymore to prove your doctrine. I sense that you have no interest in seeking the truth. 

Boy Bautista @Renz , Origin to Peter church is so shameful because he denied Jesus 3 times. The Living Church is everyone born with new life on JESUS. The RC cannot understand this even the pope.

Renz @Boy Bautista If Peter’s church is so shameful, then why your church copied the Bible? Why your church use the book of Peter in your Bible? Since your church followed the Scriptures of a so shameful church, therefore, your church is also so shameful, right? You don’t know what you are talking about. If RC (which is the originator of the Bible) does not understand God’s teachings, how much more your own church, which was founded very recently? Your “faith alone” doctrine even contradicts the teachings of the Bible. And yet you have the audacity to claim that you know the Bible better than the Catholic Church.  

Boy Bautista @Renz , The Truth is Jesus. The law is there for you to know that you are a SINNER. No sinner can save himself by doing good works. If ever can, Jesus should have not come and paid all sins by His blood.

Renz @Boy Bautista The law was made only to let us know that we are sinners, so after Jesus saved us, don’t we need to follow the law and continue sinning? This is ridiculous. Why is it that Jesus told the prostitute woman to sin no more if the law is no longer necessary? No matter how hard you do good works, but you have no faith the saving work of Jesus, you cannot be saved also  _this is what Saint Paul meant in his teaching. The Bible teaches us that faith and doing the law should go together in order to save our lives.

Boy Bautista @Renz , Jesus did not say, “On you Peter”. Perhaps the reason is you don’t who Jesus is, The Rock, The Foundation, The Kingdom, The Word, The Almighty God, The Way, The Truth, The Life. etc, etc..

Renz @Boy Bautista  If truly you know Jesus and His firm believer, don’t play game, let us be honest. Jesus founded His Church on rock (peter). Jesus changed Simon’s name into Peter because He chose him as the foundation of His Church. This is one of the sicknesses of rebellious Christians who could not topple the Catholic Church’s doctrine, they will resort to word-for-word basis. We are no longer a child that cannot understand a simple sentence. Love the truth because Jesus is the truth.

Boy Bautista @Renz , The Truth is Jesus. The law is there for you to know that you are a SINNER. No sinner can save himself by doing good works. If ever can, Jesus should have not come and paid all sins by His blood.

Renz @Boy Bautista It is not knowing that you are a sinner, but the law is there for us to stop sinning. No sinner can save himself by doing good works if you don’t have faith the saving work of Jesus. You must believe the saving work of Jesus first. Because there are people who do good works but don’t believe the salvation provided by Jesus, for instance the Muslims, they believe that by doing good works alone, they can go to paradise.

Boy Bautista @Renz , All of the books in the Bible were written by Hebrews, no single Catholic contributed. Salvation can be received from Jesus Christ alone. Good works that shall follow are fruits of salvation, but, if you continue the sinful lifestyle, that means you have not Jesus Christ nor believe nor have faith in Him. Works to earn salvation are direct rejection of Jesus Christ’s offer of free salvation. You obviously don’t understand “salvation by grace”, because you want to earn it.

Renz @Boy Bautista where did the protestants get the Bible in 1517? don’t tell me the Bible suddenly went into their hands? the Catholics were the ones who kept the Scriptures. and they were the ones who selected the inspired books then compiled them as bible. You should read the history so that you wouldn’t end up lying.

If salvation comes first (through faith) therefore good works comes as a result, then why there are protestants who still sinning? I don’t think they don’t believe the saving work of Jesus. There is a Born Again Church closed to our house built 8 years ago, And I had noticed that their number grew from one to more than a hundred. But I had also noticed two years after their number declined, their number today is less than 20 mostly children. I asked why their number declined, one of the ex-member said, (who is my cousin) that their number started declining when the members found out that their pastor had affairs with 3 lady members. I don’t think that this pastor doesn’t believe the saving work of Jesus. So your doctrine is inconsistent. The teaching of Saint Paul is very clear, that we can be saved through faith aside from obeying the law.

I DID STUDY. AND THIS IS WHAT I HAVE LEARNT; GOD FOUNDED A KINGDOM ON EARTH FOR ETERNITY,

[Psalm 78:69] (Aramaic Bible in Plain English) “He built His holy place upon the height and He prepared it in the earth for eternity.

[Daniel 2:44] “At the time of those kings, the God of heaven will establish a kingdom that will never be destroyed. No other people will be permitted to rule it. It will smash all the other kingdoms and put an end to them. And it will be established forever”

GOD SAYS HE WILL SET JESUS OVER HIS HOUSE (THE CHURCH AND KINGDOM FOREVER);

[1 Chronicles 17:14] I will set him over my house and my kingdom forever; his throne will be established forever.

GOD SAYS THIS KINGDOM WILL NOT BE DESTROYED AND WILL ENDURE FOREVER, THEREFORE NO MORE KINGDOM AFTER THIS;

[2 Samuel 7:16] “Your house and your kingdom shall endure before Me forever; your throne shall be established forever.”

[Daniel 7:14] “And to Him was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom, that all the peoples, nations and men of every language might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed”.

[Jeremiah 50:5] “They will ask for the way to Zion, turning their faces in its direction; they will come that they may join themselves to the LORD in an everlasting covenant that will not be forgotten.

JESUS ASSURED THAT THE CHURCH HE FOUNDED ON PETER WOULD NOT BE OVERCOME BY THE GATES OF HELL (OTHER RELIGIONS). SO IT IS NOT TRUE THAT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WAS CORRUPTED:

[Matthew 16:18] You are Peter, and I can guarantee that on this rock I will build my church. And the gates of hell will not overpower it

JESUS PREACHED THIS CHURCH OR KINGDOM TO THE PEOPLE;

[Matthew 9:35] Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.

Posted in Contradiction, Islam, Koranic verses

MUCH CONTRADICTIONS IN QURAN

The Quran says, Do they not then consider the Quran carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much contradictions (4:82).

Ironically, contrary to what Quran claims, it contains much contradictions not to mention its ignorant verses. If we examine Quran even without care, we can easily spot errors therein. And take note it’s authored by only one person (Muhammad) who was supposedly inspired by God _this shows that he has an inconsistent mind. Muslims consider Quran as Muhammad’s miracle, words of God that descended from Heaven. But obviously there are numerous writings on Earth that are far better than the Quran (the supposed Heavenly book). Below are few of the numerous contradictions found in Koran that Muslims cannot explain.

1. Quran affirms that Allah and the God of Abraham are one. Quran says, none can change the word of Allah [6:115], How come Islam accused the Bible to be corrupted? It appears that Muslims don’t believe what Allah is declaring, that his word cannot be corrupted or changed. 

verse in question

[6:115] And the word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can alter His words, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing. 

2. [Quran 6:115 & 6:34] state that none can alter the words of Allah; But ironically in [2:106 & 16:101], Allah replaced His revelations with something better. It shows that Allah’s words are unreliable and not divine. 

verses in question 

[6:34] And certainly were messengers denied before you, but they were patient over [the effects of] denial, and they were harmed until Our victory came to them. And none can alter the words of Allah . And there has certainly come to you some information about the [previous] messengers. 

contradicts with 

[2:106] None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar: Knowest thou not that Allah Hath power over all things? 

[16:101] And when We substitute a verse in place of a verse – and Allah is most knowing of what He sends down – they say, “You, [O Muhammad], are but an inventor [of lies].” But most of them do not know.

3. Allah claimed that he is God, (the all-wise, all-knower, and knower of the unseen). In verses [4:171 & 5:116], Allah thought that the persons in Trinity are Jesus, Mary, and Spirit of God/Allah (in truth it is God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit). How come he failed to know the persons of Trinity? It turned out that he is the ignorant god. If Allah does not know a simple matter here on Earth, how much more on matters about spirit and heavens? 

verses in question

[4:171] O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not “Trinity” : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.

[5:116] And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, ‘Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah ?'” He will say, “Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen. 

4. [Quran 12:39, 3:6, & 58:21] say Allah is almighty, strong, and wise, but Satan was able to sneak revelations to Muhammad [53:19-20]. It turns out that Allah has no control over Satan and Muhammad in uttering the Satanic verses

verses in question 

[3:6] It is He who forms you in the wombs however He wills. There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.

[58:21] Allah has written, “I will surely overcome, I and My messengers.” Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.

contradict with 

[53:19-20] So have you considered al-Lat and al-‘Uzza? And Manat, the third – the other one? 

5. In [20:53 & 43:10], Allah says that the Earth is spread out like carpet or shaped flat, but in actual, the Earth is globular or circle. The all-knower Allah turns out to be ignorant Allah.

verses in question 

[20:53] [It is He] who has made for you the earth as a bed [spread out] and inserted therein for you roadways and sent down from the sky, rain and produced thereby categories of various plants.

[43:10] (Yea, the same that) has made for you the earth (like a carpet) spread out, and has made for you roads (and channels) therein, in order that ye may find guidance (on the way)

6. [Quran 21:98] says Allah will destroy idolaters and other gods, but in [18:50], Allah himself commands his Angels to prostrate to Adam. It turns out that Allah pushed his Angels to commit idolatry against him. Since Allah’s Angels committed the sin of idolatry, therefore, they are to be thrown into the hellfire. 

verses in question 

[21:98] Indeed, you [disbelievers] and what you worship other than Allah are the firewood of Hell. You will be coming to [enter] it.

contradicts with 

[18:50] And [mention] when We said to the angels, “Prostrate to Adam,” and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was of the jinn and departed from the command of his Lord. Then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than Me while they are enemies to you? Wretched it is for the wrongdoers as an exchange. 

7. [3:45] tells Jesus is held in honor in the afterlife, But in [21:98] says, whatever you worship apart from Allah is fuel for Hell. Christians worship Jesus, so He will be fueled to Hell by Allah. It turns out that there will be no Jesus to be held in honor in the afterlife. 

verses in question

[3:45] Behold! the angels said: “O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah 

contradicts with 

[21:98] Indeed, you [disbelievers] and what you worship other than Allah are the firewood of Hell. You will be coming to [enter] it.

8. [Quran 4:171 & 3:45] tells us that Jesus is a Spirit or Word of Allah; But [5:17] says that following Christ is a blasphemy, and Allah will destroy Christ. So it means Allah will destroy his own Spirit or Word?

verses in question 

[4:171] O followers of the Book! do not exceed the limits in your religion, and do not speak (lies) against Allah, but (speak) the truth; the Messiah, Isa son of Marium is only a messenger of Allah and His Word which He communicated to Marium and a spirit from Him; believe therefore in Allah and His messengers, and say not, Three. Desist, it is better for you; Allah is only one Allah; far be It from His glory that He should have a son, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His, and Allah is sufficient for a Protector.

[3:45] Behold! the angels said: “O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah;

contradict with

[5:17] In blasphemy indeed are those that say that Allah is Christ the son of Mary. Say: “Who then hath the least power against Allah, if His will were to destroy Christ the son of Mary, his mother, and all every – one that is on the earth? For to Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between. He createth what He pleaseth. For Allah hath power over all things.”

9. In [66:12 & 21:91] Jesus is a Spirit of Allah breathed into Mary’s body, so Jesus is formed in the womb of Mary, But in [3:59], Jesus is created by Allah from dust and his word. 

verses in question 

[66:12] And Mary, daughter of ‘Imran, whose body was chaste, therefor We breathed therein something of Our Spirit. And she put faith in the words of her Lord and His scriptures, and was of the obedient. 

contradict with

[3:59] Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Adam. He created Him from dust; then He said to him, “Be,” and he was.

10. [Qur’an 2:62] says, those who believe in Qur’an, and follow Jewish Scriptures, and Christians will have rewards from their Lord; But [3:85] says non-Muslim cannot enter paradise 

verses in question

[2:62Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans [before Prophet Muhammad] – those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness – will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.

contradicts with 

[3:85] And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.

11. [Quran 2:256] says, “let there be no compulsion in religion”, But [9:5] commands Muslims to slay the disbelievers if they don’t repent and establish worship for Allah”

verses in question 

[2:256] There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.

contradicts with 

[9:5] And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. 

12. [5:5] it is lawful to marry a chaste woman among the people of the Book (Jews and Christians), But [2:221] says, “do not marry unbelieving woman”

verses in question 

[5:5] This day [all] good foods have been made lawful, and the food of those who were given the Scripture is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. And [lawful in marriage are] chaste women from among the believers and chaste women from among those who were given the Scripture before you, when you have given them their due compensation, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse or taking [secret] lovers. And whoever denies the faith – his work has become worthless, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.

contradicts with 

[2:221] And do not marry polytheistic women until they believe. And a believing slave woman is better than a polytheist, even though she might please you. And do not marry polytheistic men [to your women] until they believe. And a believing slave is better than a polytheist, even though he might please you. Those invite [you] to the Fire, but Allah invites to Paradise and to forgiveness, by His permission. And He makes clear His verses to the people that perhaps they may remember. 

13. [6:121] says, do not eat the food that Allah has not mentioned and don’t obey suggested food by disbelievers, but [5:5] says, it is lawful to eat the food of Jews and Christians

verses in question 

[6:121] And do not eat of that upon which the name of Allah has not been mentioned, for indeed, it is grave disobedience. And indeed do the devils inspire their allies [among men] to dispute with you. And if you were to obey them, indeed, you would be associators [of others with Him].

contradicts with

[5:5] This day [all] good foods have been made lawful, and the food of those who were given the Scripture is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. And [lawful in marriage are] chaste women from among the believers and chaste women from among those who were given the Scripture before you, when you have given them their due compensation, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse or taking [secret] lovers. And whoever denies the faith – his work has become worthless, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.

14. In [4:153], Allah forgave Israelites for worshiping the calf, But in [4:48 & 4:116], Allah does not forgive those who worship gods

verses in question 

[4:153] The People of the Scripture ask you to bring down to them a book from the heaven. But they had asked of Moses [even] greater than that and said, “Show us Allah outright,” so the thunderbolt struck them for their wrongdoing. Then they took the calf [for worship] after clear evidences had come to them, and We pardoned that. And We gave Moses a clear authority.

contradicts with 

[4:48] Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin.

15. In [3:39], John is a confirmer of the word of Allah, but in [5:46 & 61:6] Jesus is the confirmer of the Word of Allah. Which of the two is the true confrmer?

verse in question 

[3:39] So the angels called him while he was standing in prayer in the chamber, “Indeed, Allah gives you good tidings of John, confirming a word from Allah and [who will be] honorable, abstaining [from women], and a prophet from among the righteous.”

contradicts with

[5:46] And We sent, following in their footsteps, Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming that which came before him in the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it of the Torah as guidance and instruction for the righteous.

16. [2:107], says that Allah has no helper, But in [41:31], angels are ready to come down from Heaven to assist those who believe in Allah.

verses in question 

[2:107] Do you not know that to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and [that] you have not besides Allah any protector or any helper? 

contradicts with

[41:31] We were your allies in the worldly life and in the Hereafter. And you will have therein whatever your souls desire, and you will have therein whatever you request 

17. [4:158] states that Jesus is not dead and Allah took him up unto himself, but unfortunately, [19:33] says that Jesus will die and will be resurrected. What happened really to Jesus?

verses in question 

[4:158] But Allah took him up unto Himself. Allah was ever Mighty, Wise.

Contradicts with

[19:33] And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I am raised alive.” 

18. [2:97] says Angel Gabriel is the one who revealed the Scripture or Quran, but in [16:102], it is the Holy Spirit who revealed the Quran.

verses in question

[2:97] Say, “Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel – it is [none but] he who has brought the Qur’an down upon your heart, [O Muhammad], by permission of Allah , confirming that which was before it and as guidance and good tidings for the believers.”

contradicts with

[16:102] Say, the Holy Spirit has brought the revelation from thy Lord in Truth, in order to strengthen those who believe, and as a Guide and Glad Tidings to Muslims.

19. [55:14] says man is created from a ringing clay; But [15:26 &28] tells, man is created from a sounding clay and black mud; But worse [20:55] says, man is made from earth or soil; But even worse [25:54] says, man is created from water; But worst [16:4 & 80:19] says, man is created from a sperm-drop; But even worst [96:2] states that man is created from a clot of blood; But even so worst [19:9, 19:67, & 52:35] state that, man is created from nothing. Which of these seven contradicting statements is true?

verses in contradiction with each other 

[55:14] He created man of clay like the potter’s 

[15:26] And We did certainly create man out of clay from an altered black mud.

[20:55] From the earth We created you, and into it We will return you, and from it We will extract you another time.

[25:54] It is he who has created man from water 

[16:4] He created man from a sperm-drop; then at once, he is a clear adversary. 

[96:2] He created man from a clot of blood

[19:67] But does not man call to mind that We created him before out of nothing? 

20. In [2:37], Adam was Islam believer; [2:132 & 3:67] states that Abraham was already a Muslim long time before Moses; [7:143] states that Moses is the first believer, and [39:12] states that Muhammad is commanded to be the first Muslim. Which of these four people is the true first Muslim?

verses in contradiction with each other 

[2:37] And Abraham instructed his sons [to do the same] and [so did] Jacob, [saying], “O my sons, indeed Allah has chosen for you this religion, so do not die except while you are Muslims.” 

[2:132] And Abraham instructed his sons [to do the same] and [so did] Jacob, [saying], “O my sons, indeed Allah has chosen for you this religion, so do not die except while you are Muslims.”

[7:143] And when Moses arrived at Our appointed time and his Lord spoke to him, he said, “My Lord, show me [Yourself] that I may look at You.” [ Allah ] said, “You will not see Me, but look at the mountain; if it should remain in place, then you will see Me.” But when his Lord appeared to the mountain, He rendered it level, and Moses fell unconscious. And when he awoke, he said, “Exalted are You! I have repented to You, and I am the first of the believers.” 

[39:12] And I have been commanded to be the first [among you] of the Muslims.”

21. [39:12] states that Muhammad is the first Muslim, but in [46:9], he states that he is not the first apostle. How can you be the first believer if you are not the first apostle?

verses in question 

[39:12] And I have been commanded to be the first [among you] of the Muslims.”  

contradict with 

[46:9] Say: I am not the first of the messengers, and I do not know what will be done with me or with you: I do not follow anything but that which is revealed to me, and I am nothing but a plain warner. 

22. In [5:90], wine is prohibited in the world because it is the handwork of Satan, But ironically in [47:15 & 83:22-25], rivers of wine is the prize for the righteous in Heaven. So there will be drunkards in Heaven because of the handwork of Satan?

verses in question 

[5:90] O you who have believed, indeed, intoxicants, gambling, [sacrificing on] stone alters [to other than Allah ], and divining arrows are but defilement from the work of Satan, so avoid it that you may be successful. 

[47:15] Is the description of Paradise, which the righteous are promised, wherein are rivers of water unaltered, rivers of milk the taste of which never changes, rivers of wine delicious to those who drink, and rivers of purified honey, in which they will have from all [kinds of] fruits and forgiveness from their Lord, like [that of] those who abide eternally in the Fire and are given to drink scalding water that will sever their intestines?

23. Islam believes the singularity of Allah, But in [2:34-35, 2:36-38, 45:16, 21:9, 6:6, 21:104, 51:47, 21;30, etc.] Allah is plural

verses in question 

[2:34] And (remember) when We said to the angels: “Prostrate yourselves before Adam.”. And they prostrated except Iblis (Satan), he refused and was proud and was one of the disbelievers (disobedient to Allah). 

[2:36] But Satan caused them to deflect therefrom and expelled them from the (happy) state in which they were; and We said: Fall down, one of you a foe unto the other! There shall be for you on earth a habitation and provision for a time.

[45:16] And We did certainly give the Children of Israel the Scripture and judgement and prophethood, and We provided them with good things and preferred them over the worlds. 

[21:104] The Day when We will fold the heaven like the folding of a [written] sheet for the records. As We began the first creation, We will repeat it. [That is] a promise binding upon Us. Indeed, We will do it.

24. [7:54, 10:3, 11:7, & 25:59] clearly state that God created “the heavens and the earth” in six days. But in [41:9-12] the detailed description of the creation procedure adds up to eight days. 

verses in question 

[7:54] Indeed, your Lord is Allah , who created the heavens and earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne. He covers the night with the day, [another night] chasing it rapidly; and [He created] the sun, the moon, and the stars, subjected by His command. Unquestionably, His is the creation and the command; blessed is Allah , Lord of the worlds. 

contradicts with

[41:9-12] Say, “Do you indeed disbelieve in He who created the earth in two days and attribute to Him equals? That is the Lord of the worlds.” And He placed on the earth firmly set mountains over its surface, and He blessed it and determined therein its [creatures’] sustenance in four days without distinction – for [the information] of those who ask. Then He directed Himself to the heaven while it was smoke and said to it and to the earth, “Come [into being], willingly or by compulsion.” They said, “We have come willingly.” And He completed them as seven heavens within two days and inspired in each heaven its command. And We adorned the nearest heaven with lamps and as protection. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing.

25. Islam criticizes Christian for asking intercession from Saints so that God may forgive their sins, but [4:64] instructs Muslims to ask intercession from Muhammad so that Allah may forgive them.

verse in question 

[4:64] And We did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by permission of Allah . And if, when they wronged themselves, they had come to you, [O Muhammad], and asked forgiveness of Allah and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Accepting of repentance and Merciful.

26. What about Noah’s son? According to [21:76], Noah and his family is saved from the flood, and [37:77] confirms that his seed survived. But [11:42-43] reports that Noah’s son drowns.

verses in question

[21:76] And (mention) Noah, when he called (to Allah) before (that time), so We responded to him and saved him and his family from the great flood.

[37:77] And We made his descendants those remaining (on the earth) 

Contradict with 

[11:42-43] And it sailed with them through waves like mountains, and Noah called to his son who was apart [from them], “O my son, come aboard with us and be not with the disbelievers.” [But] he said, “I will take refuge on a mountain to protect me from the water.” [Noah] said, “There is no protector today from the decree of Allah , except for whom He gives mercy.” And the waves came between them, and he was among the drowned. 

27. [38:41] says that the source of calamity or evil in life is from Satan, but in [4:79], it is from Ourselves, and in [4:78], it is from Allah

verses in contradiction with each other 

[38:41] And remember Our servant Job, when he called to his Lord, “Indeed, Satan has touched me with hardship and torment.” 

[4:79] What comes to you of good is from Allah , but what comes to you of evil, [O man], is from yourself. And We have sent you, [O Muhammad], to the people as a messenger, and sufficient is Allah as Witness.

[4:78] Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you should be within towers of lofty construction. But if good comes to them, they say, “This is from Allah “; and if evil befalls them, they say, “This is from you.” Say, “All [things] are from Allah .” So what is [the matter] with those people that they can hardly understand any statement? 

28. [2:256] says, “let there be no compulsion in religion”, But [2:191 & 9:5] command Muslims to slay the disbelievers if they don’t repent and establish worship for Allah”. And also those who will leave Islam will be killed [3:56]. 

verses in question 

[2:256] There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing. 

contradicts with; 

[2:191] And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers. 

[3:56]  And as for those who disbelieved, I will punish them with a severe punishment in this world and the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers.”

29. [4:153] Allah forgave Moses’ people for worshiping calf god, but in [4:48 & 4:116], Allah does not forgive those who worship gods other than him. Which of these statements is true? 

verses in question

[4;153] The People of the Scripture ask you to bring down to them a book from the heaven. But they had asked of Moses [even] greater than that and said, “Show us Allah outright,” so the thunderbolt struck them for their wrongdoing. Then they took the calf [for worship] after clear evidences had come to them, and We pardoned that. And We gave Moses a clear authority.

contradicts with

[4:116] Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly gone far astray.

30. [5:5] says it is lawful to eat the food of the Jews and Christians, but [6:121] prohibits the eating of the food suggested by disbelievers.

verses in question 

[5:5] This day [all] good foods have been made lawful, and the food of those who were given the Scripture is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. And [lawful in marriage are] chaste women from among the believers and chaste women from among those who were given the Scripture before you, when you have given them their due compensation, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse or taking [secret] lovers. And whoever denies the faith – his work has become worthless, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers. 

contradicts with 

[6:121] And do not eat of that upon which the name of Allah has not been mentioned, for indeed, it is grave disobedience. And indeed do the devils inspire their allies [among men] to dispute with you. And if you were to obey them, indeed, you would be associators [of others with Him].

31. In [Qur’an 3:39], John is a confirmer of the word of Allah, but in [5:46 & 61:6] Jesus is the confirmer of the Word of Allah. Which of the two is the real confirmer? 

verses in question 

[3:39] So the angels called him while he was standing in prayer in the chamber, “Indeed, Allah gives you good tidings of John, confirming a word from Allah and [who will be] honorable, abstaining [from women], and a prophet from among the righteous.” 

[5:46] And We sent, following in their footsteps, Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming that which came before him in the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it of the Torah as guidance and instruction for the righteous.

32. [Qur’an 2:97] says Angel Gabriel is the one who revealed the Scripture or Qur’an, but in [16:102] it is the Holy Spirit who revealed the Qur’an. 

verses in question

[2:97] Say, “Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel – it is [none but] he who has brought the Qur’an down upon your heart, [O Muhammad], by permission of Allah , confirming that which was before it and as guidance and good tidings for the believers.” 

contradicts with 

[16:102] Say: The holy Spirit hath delivered it from thy Lord with truth, that it may confirm (the faith of) those who believe, and as guidance and good tidings for those who have surrendered (to Allah).

33. (20:109) (34:23) (43:86) intercession will be accepted on Judgment Day, but (2:123) (6:51) (82:19) intercession will not be accepted

verses in question

[20:109] On that day no intercession shall avail, except the one for whom the Most Beneficent (Allah) has given permission and whose word is acceptable to Him.

contradicts with

[2:123] And fear the Day (of Judgment) when no person shall avail another, nor shall compensation be accepted from him, nor shall intercession be of use to him, nor shall they be helped.

34. Fasting is mandatory [2:183] versus [2:184 & 185] where fasting is not mandatory

verses in question

[2:183] O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous

contradicts with

[2:184] [Fasting for] a limited number of days. So whoever among you is ill or on a journey [during them] – then an equal number of days [are to be made up]. And upon those who are able [to fast, but with hardship] – a ransom [as substitute] of feeding a poor person [each day]. And whoever volunteers excess – it is better for him. But to fast is best for you, if you only knew.

35. The Earth was created first before the heavens (2:29), but the heavens was created first before the Earth (79:27-30)

verses in question

[2:29] It is He who created for you all of that which is on the earth. Then He directed Himself to the heaven, [His being above all creation], and made them seven heavens, and He is Knowing of all things.

contradicts with

[79:27-30] Are you a more difficult creation or is the heaven? Allah constructed it. He raised its ceiling and proportioned it. And He darkened its night and extracted its brightness. And after that He spread the earth.

36. No one can produce Quran (17:88), but Satan was able to put his Quran into the mouth of Muhammad (53:19-20 & 22:52)

[17:88] Say, “If mankind and the jinn gathered in order to produce the like of this Qur’an, they could not produce the like of it, even if they were to each other assistants.”

contradicts with

[53:19-20] So have you considered al-Lat and al-‘Uzza? And Manat, the third – the other one?

[22:52] And We did not send before you any messenger or prophet except that when he spoke [or recited], Satan threw into it [some misunderstanding]. But Allah abolishes that which Satan throws in; then Allah makes precise His verses. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.

37. [16:103] says Quran is written in pure Arabic, but the Quran contains a lot of foreign words

Biblical Verses About Salvation

The  following verses prove that God really intends salvation for all people who believe it;

ISLAM TEACHES SEXUAL IMMORALITY

1.) PEDOPHILIA IS TAUGHT 

[Koran 65:4] And those who no longer expect menstruation among your women – if you doubt, then their (waiting) period is three months (relating to divorce), and [also for] those who did not menstruate. And for those who are pregnant, their term is until they give birth. 

COMMENT: . . . and [also for] those who did not menstruate . . . this means that marrying or having sex with a child is permissible in Islam. This teaching is disgusting, the god of Muhammad is unaware of the psychological and physical effects on the child. Only idiotic parents can afford to give their child daughters in marriage.

Muhammad Had Sex With A Nine-year Old Child 

[Sunan Abu Dawud, Number 2116]:

Aisha said: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) married me when I was seven years old. The narrator Sulaiman said: Or six years. He had intercourse with me when I was nine years old.

[Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3311]:

‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and he was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.

COMMENT: The Hadith above proves that Muhammad had sexed with a nine year-old child who was still playing dolls. Morally and Scientifically, this act is wrong. Had Muhammad really inspired by God Yahweh, he could not have done this wicked thing. It is no doubt that marrying a child is permissible in Islam because their prophet did so. After all, he’s the moral model of Muslims, worthy of emulation, the holy one in Islam. Devoted Muslims strictly imitate their holy prophet the reason why terrorism, murders, and rapes are spread in the world. Parents normally protect their child from harm even from mosquito bite, how much more from sexual intercourse? Muhammad is certainly a pedophile, I could not imagine how a filthy man could be regarded as holy? Holy means Godly, divine, perfect, pure, or sinless. Jesus was the only holy or sinless man who lived on Earth. 

READ: Hadiths Informing Muhammad Had Sex With A Child

Allah Have Prepared Fresh Boys for Their Faithful Believers 

[Koran 52:24] “And there shall wait on them young boys of their own, as fair as virgin pearls.” 

[Koran 76:19] And round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness): If thou seest them, thou wouldst think them scattered Pearls.

Muhammad Sucked the Tongues of Boys 

[Syrian Biography of Muhammad written by Al-Amin Al-Mamoun, Chapter Title: The first people to believe in the prophet]:

For it was narrated by Fatimah Bint Asad, the mother of Ali who related that when she gave birth to her son, it was the prophet who named him Ali and the prophet spat in Ali’s mouth then allowed to suck on his tongue till he fell asleep. 

[Musnad Ahmad, Hadith number: 16245, Volume Title: The Sayings of the Syrians, Chapter Title: Hadith of Muawiya Ibn Abu Sufyan]:

Narrated by Hisham Ibn Kasim, narrated by Huraiz, narrated by Abdul Rahman Ibn Abu Awf Al Jarashy, and narrated by Muawiya who said, “I saw the prophet (pbuh) sucking on the tongue or the lips of Al-Hassan son of Ali, may the prayers of Allah be upon him . For no tongue or lips that the prophet sucked on will be tormented (by hell fire) 

Muhammad Kissed A Boy’s Little Penis 

[Hadith number 16245 Volume title, the sayings of the Syrians Hadith of Mu’ awiya Ibn Abu Sufyan]:

He (the prophet) put Husein’s legs apart and kissed his (little) penis 

2.) RAPING A SLAVE OR CAPTIVE GIRL IS ALLOWED EVEN IF THEY ARE MARRIED TO PAGANS 

[Koran 4:24] Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess. Thus has Allah ordained for you. All others are lawful, provided you seek them from your property, desiring chastity, not fornication. So with those among them whom you have enjoyed, give them their required due, but if you agree mutually after the requirement (has been determined), there is no sin on you. Surely, Allah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise. 

COMMENT:  . . . except those whom your right hands possess . . . this refers to the girl possessed by a Muslim. This means that a Muslim man is not forbidden to have sex with their captive girls whether they are married or not to non-Muslims, and whether she likes it or not. My question to Islam apologists, what if your wife, daughter, or sister becomes a slave of your neighbor? how would you feel if your neighbor raped her? This commandment is also extended to non-Muslim girls, where raping them is allowed in Islam. Allah claimed that he’s the most merciful and forgiving god in Koran, but sadly he has no mercy for girls, he made them sex objects for Muslim men, as a result, they have lesser value in Islamic society.

Muhammad Raped A Captive Girl 

[Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:60]:

After the fall of Khyber, people described the beauty of Safia Bint Hui, the new bride of a slain enemy soldier. The Prophet chose her for himself. On the way to Madina he stopped and had intercourse with her. His companions did not know if she was a wife or a concubine. Later, a veil was drawn between her and the men-folk and they came to know that she was a wife. 

Allah Allowed Muslims To Rape Their Married Female Captives

[Sunan Abu Dawud 2150 & Muslim 3433]:

Abu Said al-Khudri said: “The apostle of Allah sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the apostle of Allah were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives because of their pagan husbands. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Quranic verse, “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess”. That is to say, they are lawful for them when they complete their waiting period.” 

Muhammad Says Raping Bondwomen Is Not A Sin 

[Bukhari Kitabul Qadr 3:543]:

A man inquired, “We earn income from these bondwomen, (other narratives mention prostitution) so can we do coitus interrupts with them?” The Prophet said, “There is no sin in doing that” 

Allah Says Muslims Who Raped Their Slaves Are Surely Not To Be Blamed 

[Koran 70:29-30] And those who guard their private parts, except in the case of their wives or those whom their right hands possess– for these surely are not to be blamed. 

COMMENT: This explains why domestic helpers in Islamic countries are raped by their bosses for they regarded them as slaves. Because of this wicked commandment, Muslim men feel emboldened to rape their slaves because they know that this act is not a sin against their god. 

3.) SELLING BONDWOMEN FOR SEX IS ALLOWED BY ALLAH AND MUHAMMAD 

[Bukhari Kitabul Qadr 3:543]:

A man inquired, “We earn income from these bondwomen, (other narratives mention prostitution) so can we do coitus interrupts with them?” The Prophet said, “There is no sin in doing that” 

COMMENT: . . . “We earn income from these bondwomen, . . . This means that the pioneers of Islam were selling women for sex, this is a clear prostitution. This is one of the proofs that Islam is not a religion, but a political group formed to dominate other people and grabbed their wealth through violence. Muhammad just concocted supposed divine revelations to make sure that his men would follow him. God does not change His mind and alter His words, that after He founded His Church (Catholicism), He later changed His mind and founded another churches through a man, kindly read;

[1 Samuel 15:29] “Also the Glory of Israel will not lie or change His mind; for He is not a man that He should change His mind.” 

[Psalm 89:34] “My covenant I will not violate, Nor will I alter the utterance of My lips.

. . . “There is no sin in doing that”.  This means that after the Jihadists enslaved the non-Muslim girls, killed their relatives, and pimped them; it is also not sinful for the Jihadists to rape them. What a teaching! This god and prophet of Islam certainly have no remorse.

[Koran 4:24] And all married women except those whom your right hands possess (this is) Allah’s ordinance to you, and lawful for you are (all women) besides those, provided that you seek (them) with your property, taking (them) in marriage not committing fornication. Then as to those whom you profit by, give them their dowries as appointed; and there is no blame on you about what you mutually agree after what is appointed; surely Allah is Knowing, Wise. 

COMMENT: . . . Then as to those whom you profit by . . . this sentence points out the profit made by early Muslim men through pimping their slave or captive women after raping them. Most translations evade this wording perhaps to cover their Scripture’s immorality, and instead put an alternative wording  like. . . for the enjoyment you had from them . . . Yusuf Ali translated this as . . . seeing that ye derive benefit from them . . .  

4.) INCEST IS ALLOWED  

Sex Between Father and His Illegitimate Daughter Is Allowed 

[Commentary by Al-Qurtubi on Surah 4:23]:

For Allah, exalted and glorified, said in Surah 4:23, “Your wives’ mothers,” But did not say, “He who committed adultery with his wives’ mothers, nor his daughter whom he conceived through adultery.” 

[Al Fiqh ‘ala Al Madhahib Al Arba’ah by Abd al-Rahman al-Jaziri, Volume 4, p. 40]:

“It is permissible for a man to marry his daughter who is born through adultery.” “The one (girl) who is born through adultery does not become mahram (to her father) as the Shafiee say, because she is not considered as daughter since there is no inheritance between them.” 

Allah Is Much Concerned With Muhammad’s Sexual Pleasure, And Authorized Him To Have Sex With His Captive Women And His Close Relatives 

[Koran 33:50] O Prophet, indeed We have made lawful to you your wives to whom you have given their due compensation and those your right hand possesses from what Allah has returned to you [of captives] and the daughters of your paternal uncles and the daughters of your paternal aunts and the daughters of your maternal uncles and the daughters of your maternal aunts who emigrated with you and a believing woman if she gives herself to the Prophet [and] if the Prophet wishes to marry her, [this is] only for you, excluding the [other] believers. We certainly know what We have made obligatory upon them concerning their wives and those their right hands possess, [but this is for you] in order that there will be upon you no discomfort. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. 

5.) NECROPHILIA IS ALLOWED 

[Book Of Purity Chapter Of Washing, Imgur]:

A dead body need not be washed after you have sexual intercourse with her 

[Chapter of sexual intercourse with a dead body P.263, Imgur]:

Dowry must be paid for sexual intercourse with a dead woman who is not his wife, but if she is his wife then no need whether dead or alive 

Muhammad Had sex With His Dead Aunt 

[The issues of women, Kanz Al Umal (“The Treasure of the Workers”) by Ali Ibn Husam]:

“I (Muhammad) put on her my shirt that she may wear the clothes of heaven, and I SLEPT with her, in her coffin (grave) that I may lessen the pressure of the grave. She was the best of Allah’s creatures to me after Abu Talib”… The prophet was referring to Fatima, the mother of Ali. 

Muhammad Asked His Believer To Have Sex With A Dead Woman 

[Sahih Bukhari Volume 002, Book 023, Hadith Number 374]:

Narated By Anas bin Malik : We were (in the funeral procession) of one of the daughters of the Prophet and he was sitting by the side of the grave. I saw his eyes shedding tears. He said, “Is there anyone among you who did not have sexual relations with his wife last night?” Abu Talha replied in the affirmative. And so the Prophet told him to get down in the grave. And so he got down in her grave. 

6.) BESTIALITY AND SODOMY ARE ALLOWED WHETHER THE SEX PARTNER IS ALIVE OR DEAD 

[Sahih Muslim, Book of Menstruation, Hadith 525]:

“Our companions have said if a penile head has penetrated a woman’s anus or penile anus, or an animal’s vagina or its anus, then it is necessary to wash…”

[Book Of Purity Chapter Of Washing, Imgur]:

He who has sexual intercourse with a dead body or an animal shall not be punished 

[Book Of Purity Chapter Of Washing, Imgur]:

If the male genitalia completely entered a woman’s behind, or a man’s behind or a baheema (animal) from behind or vagina, he must be washed whether it was alive or dead, young or old 

Muhammad Had Sex With Camels  

[Sahih al-Bukhari 2357]:

Ibn Sharib narrated, Ibn Abdul Talib said: “Always when his wives had their period, I saw the Prophet (pbuh) near by his camel herd. There he had lovingly intercourse with the female animals, sometimes he also turned towards the young animals of both sexes.”

Watch: Sex with dead person and animal are allowed in Islam

7.) MARRYING MANY WIVES IS TAUGHT 

[Koran 4:3] And if you fear that you cannot act equitably towards orphans, then marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four; but if you fear that you will not do justice (between them), then (marry) only one or what your right hands possess; this is more proper, that you may not deviate from the right course. 

[Fatawa Islamiyah Darussalam Vol. 5 No. 353]:

It is not obligatory for the husband, when he wishes to marry another, to get his first wife’s acceptance, but it is a noble trait of character and good relations for him to appease her by whatever decreases the pain which woman naturally feel in such situations. This may be achieved by smiling, greeting her warmly and speaking kindly to her, and by whatever money you can afford, if her acceptance requires it. 

COMMENT: This commandment is utterly unfair to a Muslim wife. Not only she will get hurt by her husband’s second marriage, but also she is deprived of her marital right. Scornfully, to appease the pain in her, the husband just smile at her and speak to her kindly. This is the advice of Allah, the all-wise and all-knowing. Likewise, the statement above admits that the first wife gets hurt when her husband marries another. Even Muhammad asked his son-in-law not to marry another woman for his daughter (Fatima) will get hurt (Volume 4, Book 53, No. 342). Why he practiced polygamy when he saw it hurting on his part? Clearly, Muhammad and his god have no remorse for another’s feelings. Is this Godly? Allah claimed that They are the most merciful, but why They have no mercy for women, and even will send most of them to hell? They are so unfair, God Jesus treats man and woman equally. Why is it Allah and Muhammad have the same attitude? Because Muhammad is Allah himself. Allah could not move, see, talk, and hear for it is an idol, the moon god. Historically, Allah was a pagan god, and believed to have three daughters which are also mentioned in Koran 53:19-20.  

8.) ALLAH AUTHORIZED MUHAMMAD TO MARRY HIS DAUGHTER-IN-LAW 

[Quran 33:37] And [remember, O Muhammad], when you said to the one on whom Allah bestowed favor and you bestowed favor, “Keep your wife and fear Allah ,” while you concealed within yourself that which Allah is to disclose. And you feared the people, while Allah has more right that you fear Him. So when Zayd had no longer any need for her, We married her to you in order that there not be upon the believers any discomfort concerning the wives of their adopted sons when they no longer have need of them. And ever is the command of Allah accomplished. 

COMMENT: According to reports, Muhammad went to the house of Zayd, and accidentally saw Zaynab’s naked body which attracted him sexually. Zaynab was the wife of Zayd, Muhammad’s adopted son. Since he had four wives already as prescribed in Koran and also marrying his adopted son’s wife is against the pre-Islamic code of ethics, the Koranic verse above supposedly revealed to him by Allah, giving him the right to satisfy his sexual interest in Zaynab. To cover this sexual goal, Muhammad (or Allah) reasoned out that this revelation is just a guide for future Muslims who want to marry their adopted son’s divorcee. Sensing that the prophet attracted to his wife and believing that he could go to Heaven by being generous to his prophet, Zayd divorced his wife to give way to his prophet’s desire. Even Aisha marveled at the quickness of Allah to answer her husband’s desire. After this event, Muhammad took another wives and concubines mostly from war captives. Most of these women were married. 

9.) ALLAH AUTHORIZED MUHAMMAD TO HAVE SEX WITH THE WOMEN WHO WANT TO GIVE THEIR VAGINAS TO HIM 

(Koran 33:50) Prophet, We have made lawful for you your wives whom you have given their dowry, slave girls whom God has given to you as gifts, the daughters of your uncles and aunts, both paternal and maternal, who have migrated with you. The believing woman, who has offered herself to the Prophet and whom the Prophet may want to marry, will be specially for him, not for other believers. We knew what to make obligatory for them concerning their wives and slave girls so that you would face no hardship (because we have given distinction to you over the believers). God is All-forgiving and All-merciful.

Women Offered Their Vaginas To Muhammad 

[Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 48]:

Narrated Hisham’s father: Khaula bint Hakim was one of those ladies who presented themselves to the Prophet. ‘Aisha said, “Doesn’t a lady feel ashamed for presenting herself to a man?”

[Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 53]:

Narrated Thabit Al-Banani: “A woman came to Allah’s Apostle and presented herself to him, saying, ‘O Allah’s Apostle, have you any need for me ?’ “Thereupon Anas’s daughter said, “What a shameless lady she was! Shame! Shame!” Anas said, “She was better than you; she had a liking for the Prophet. 

10.) SEX WITH FRUITS IS ALLOWED

[Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim (Islamic scholar), page 129]:

“If a man makes a hole in a watermelon, or a piece of dough, or a leather skin, or a statue, and has sex with it, then this is the same as what we have said about other types of masturbation [i.e., that it is halaal in the same circumstances given before, such as being on a journey]. In fact, it is easier than masturbating with one’s hand”. “If a woman does not have a husband, and her lust becomes strong, then some of our scholars say: It is permissible for the woman to take an akranbij, which is a piece of leather worked until it becomes shaped like a penis, and insert it in herself. She may also use a cucumber”.

11.) CONTRACT SEX (NIKAH MUT’AH) IS TAUGHT 

[Ibn Kathir’s explanation on Quran 4:24]: 

“. . . (O people! I allowed you the Mut`ah marriage with women before. Now, Allah has prohibited it until the Day of Resurrection. Therefore, anyone who has any women in Mut`ah, let him let them go, and do not take anything from what you have given them.) Allah’s statement, (but if you agree mutually (to give more) after the requirement (has been determined), there is no sin on you.) is similar to His other statement, . . . “

[Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3255]:

“Sabra al-Juhanni reported on the authority of his father that while he was with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon hm) he said: 0 people, I had permitted you to contract temporary marriage with women . . . ” 

[Muwatta Imam Malik, Book 28, Number 28.18.42]:

Yahya related to me from Malik from Ibn Shihab from Urwa ibn az-Zubayr that Khawla ibn Hakim came to Umar ibn al-Khattab and said, ”Rabia ibn Umayya made a temporary marriage with a woman and she . . . ”

12.) IN ORDER FOR A MUSLIMA TO BE UNLAWFUL FOR A MAN TO HAVE SEX WITH HER, SHE JUST NEEDS TO SUCKLE HIM TEN TIMES 

Muhammad Commanded A Woman To Suckle An Adult Man 

[Sahih Muslim 1453a]: 

A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Sahla bint Suhail came to Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) and said:  Messenger of Allah, I see on the face of Abu Hudhaifa (signs of disgust) on entering of Salim (who is an ally) into (our house), whereupon Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) said: Suckle him. She said: How can I suckle him as he is a grown-up man? Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) smiled and said: I already know that he is a young man ‘Amr has made this addition in his narration that he participated in the Battle of Badr and in the narration of Ibn ‘Umar (the words are): Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) laughed.

[Sahih Muslim 8:3425]: 

‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Salim, the freed slave of Abu Hadhaifa, lived with him and his family in their house. She (i. e. the daughter of Suhail came to Allah’s Apostle ﷺ and said: Salim has attained (purbety) as men attain, and he understands what they understand, and he enters our house freely, I, however, perceive that something (rankles) in the heart of Abu Hudhaifa, whereupon Allah’s Apostle ﷺ said to her: Suckle him and you would become unlawful for him, and (the rankling) which Abu Hudhaifa feels in his heart will disappear. She returned and said: So I suckled him, and what (was there) in the heart of Abu Hudhaifa disappeared.

Allah Revealed A Verse Of Suckling An Adult 

[Ibn Majah Volume 3, Book 9, Hadith 1944 & Sahih Muslim 1453]:

It was narrated that ‘Aishah said: “The Verse of stoning and of breastfeeding an adult ten times was revealed, and the paper was with me under my pillow. When the Messenger of Allah died, we were preoccupied with his death, and a tame sheep came in and ate it.”

13.) ALLAH KEEPS EVER-VIRGIN SEX SLAVES IN HIS PARADISE FOR THE MUSLIM FIGHTERS, CLOSELY GUARDED THEM IN PAVILIONS 

[Quran 52:20] They will recline (with ease) on Thrones (of dignity) arranged in ranks; and We shall join them to Companions, with beautiful big and lustrous eyes.

[Quran 55:70-74] Therein are those of modest gaze, whom neither man nor jinni will have touched before them. Wherein (are found) the good and beautiful-
Fair ones, close-guarded in pavilions –
Whom neither man nor jinni will have touched before them

[Quran 56:22-23] And (there will be) Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes,- Like unto Pearls well-guarded.

[Ishaq: 349] “The battle will tell the world about us. Distant men will heed our warning. The infidels may cut off my leg, yet I am a Muslim. I will exchange my life for one with VIRGINS fashioned like the most beautiful statues.” 

COMMENT: This statement of Ali confirms that Jihadists expect virgins in afterlife. For they so believe the lies of their prophet that they will get 72 virgins as award if they fight for Allah’s cause. 

14.) ALLAH WILL MAKE THE PENIS OF JIHADIST EVER-ERECT TO MATCH THE 72 DELICIOUS EVER-VIRGIN VAGINAS IN HIS PARADISE

[Sunan Ibn Majah, Zuhd (Book of Abstinence) 39]:

“Abu Umama narrated: “The Messenger of God said, ‘Everyone that God admits into paradise will be married to 72 wives; two of them are houris and seventy of his inheritance of the [female] dwellers of hell. All of them will have libidinous sex organs and he will have an ever-erect penis” 

[Al-Itqan fi Ulum al-Qur’an, p. 351]:

Each time we sleep with a Houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternalthe sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one [i.e. Muslim] will marry seventy [sic] houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetizing vaginas.

Islam Commands Brutal Killing Of Non-Muslims

Whenever there is an Islamic killing spree or suicide bombing, Islam leaders would always say, “we condemn terrorism . . . these people are twisting the lofty teaching of Islam . . . Islam is a religion of peace”. In the previous, I bought this type of declaration but not until I have studied Islam. I checked what the internet people are telling against Islam; that it is a cult, it is barbaric and immoral, and its main teaching is to slaughter non-Muslims until no more Kafir left. After studying Islam, I have found out that these allegations are true. I had asked to myself, “how come these Muslim leaders do not know the cause of Allah, for certainly, they must have studied their own religion well?”.  A Muslim is obligated to fight to death and kill Kafirs as much as possible. To step back or refrain from fighting is a sin against Allah. Muslims have no recourse except to fight to death for Allah, or else Allah will kill them terribly here and hereafter. My mind told me that these Islamic leaders must be lying to non-Muslims. They deceive non-Muslims for telling that their Faith is into peace. The God in the Bible cannot lie, but this god of Muhammad is different, he is the best of deceivers. He commands Muslims to lie in dealing with their enemies (unbelievers) so as to eliminate or subjugate them. The said enemies of Islam are the non-Muslims esp. Christians and Jews. Hence, it is not surprising to hear Imams and other leaders denying terrorism as endemic to their Faith. This Islam makes its believers brutal as well as sexually immoral, below are proofs of this testimony;

QUOTED FROM KORAN:

1.) [2:191] And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers. 

COMMENT: The word “fitnah” means disorder stirred against Islam. This first appeared in Koran verse 2:217. This inspiration was supposedly revealed when Muhammad’s troop refused to attack the enemy in observance of the holy month. Muhammad described Fitnah as worse than killing and urged his believers to attack the enemy (idolaters, Jews and Christians). Muslims are commanded to conquer the world until fitnah is no more [2:193], meaning to eliminate disorder is to Islamize the world. Islam viewed the unbelief of Islam as the one which causes fitnah. However if we are to examine the Islamic countries, obviously Muslims are fighting each other. They are in great disorder, the reason why many of them ran to Christian nations for refuge. But unfortunately these refugees still stick to Islam, as a result they ungratefully cause deaths and terrorism in the countries that shelter them. Therefore, to Islamize the world won’t create peace but great disorder instead. 

2.) [2:193] Fight them until there is no more fitnah and until worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah. But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors. 

COMMENT: The Koran is so explicit about slaughtering non-believers, esp. Jews and Christians. At first, Muslims were only commanded by Muhammad to fight against the aggressors and oppressors as reflected above. But eventually, this leveled up to attacking innocent community for the purpose of enslaving, robbing or looting their wealth, and raping and selling their girls. All kinds of crime were committed by Muhammad and his bandits, and they did these under the pretext of God’s commandment. My question to Muslim defenders: If a group ransacked your home and killed your father, son, or brother; and raped your wife, sister, daughter, or mother; how would you feel? are these acts righteous and pleasing to your senses? I hope you will finally listen to your conscience and start disclosing the lies of Islam. The Bible teaches, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’ This is the rational teaching and not coming from evil. 

3.) [2:216] Fighting has been enjoined upon you while it is hateful to you. But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not. 

COMMENT: . . . Fighting has been enjoined upon you . . . this sentence testifies that when you are a Muslim, you are bound to fight against non-Muslims. This is a binding agreement between you and Allah. A Muslim’s failure to follow this binding means their death. So for the Muslims out there who are called moderate (those who refused to kill or subjugate non-Muslims), you are in danger of death by your Jihadists, plus you will be punished terribly in hell because you breach your binding agreement with Allah. 

4.) [2:244] And fight in the cause of Allah and know that Allah is Hearing and Knowing. 

COMMENT: The cause of Allah is to wipe out non-Muslims on Earth. For the ignorant Muslims (those who do not know the true teaching of Islam), you are bound to die and kill kafirs for the sake of Allah. Your god will kill you brutally here and hereafter if you do not carry out his cause.

5.) [3:151] We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers. 

COMMENT: This verse inspires terrorism, no wonder Islam is the favorite religion of terrorists, looters, beheaders, and rapists. Allah calls Christians wrongdoers, I wonder how he defines the word ‘wrongdoing’ for all types of wickedness (such as fornication, rape, killings, beheading and cutting off limbs, enslaving, child sex, grabbing others wealth, beating wives, telling lies, etc.) are taught and sanctioned by him. Indeed, there’s no other wrongdoings in the world greater than Islamic brutality and immorality. 

6.) [3:56] “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.” 

COMMENT: Here, Allah will terribly punish those who reject and leave Islam, not only in this world, but also in afterlife. He terrifies the people and forces himself to be worshiped. Is this what Allah calls himself the most merciful? Is this what Muslims call Islam as a religion of peace and no compulsion? 

7.) [4:74] So let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter. And he who fights in the cause of Allah and is killed or achieves victory – We will bestow upon him a great reward. 

COMMENT: Allah demands the bloods of his believers. In contrast, Jesus Christ gave his blood for humans to have eternal lives. He redeemed the humanity from spiritual destruction because of His love and righteousness. Jesus forbids us to murder and teaches us to love our enemies. Muhammad acknowledged Jesus as Islamic prophet, but he did not follow His teaching. God cannot lie and so are His prophets or else no one will believe their words. For Muhammad to acknowledge Jesus as a prophet, he confirmed that Jesus is telling the truth. If Muhammad is right in commanding to murder the enemies, then he is lying for telling that Jesus is a prophet. In either way, Muhammad is a liar.

8.) [4:76] Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the cause of evil. So fight against the allies of Satan. Indeed, the plot of Satan has ever been weak. 

COMMENT: Here Allah accuses non-Muslims as the cause of evil. This verse is very deceiving, this is the reason why Muslims concluded that Islam is of God for it condemns Satan literally. Jesus predicted the coming of the people who will pretend to be sheeps, but deep inside they are wolves. Jesus advised His believers to examine the activity of these people whether they are from good or evil. Islam is doing evil, therefore, this Faith comes not from God but rather from Satan. After all, Allah is the best of deceivers in Koran [3:54], the same description of Satan described in the Bible [Acts 13:10].

9.) [4:89] They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another). So take not Auliya’ (protectors or friends) from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allah (to Muhammad SAW). But if they turn back (from Islam), take (hold) of them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliya’ (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them. 

COMMENT: This is another verse that scares Muslims so that they won’t leave their Faith. In Islam, you can join any time you like but you can never leave. In the beginning of Islam, many left and some ridiculed Muhammad prompting him to kill them via his avid followers. And of course for his executioners to obey, Muhammad needed Allah’s revelation like the verse above.

10.) [4:95] Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home), except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame, etc.), and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives above those who sit (at home). Unto each, Allah has promised Paradise, but Allah has preferred those who strive hard and fight, above those who sit (at home) by a huge reward; 

COMMENT: To Allah, if you are disabled, you have a slim chance of going to Jannah, for he prefers the one who could go to war whom he will give a huge reward. In the Bible, you can be saved by believing Jesus Christ as our savior (who died on the cross for us), and do good works (such as; do not murder, do not tell a lie, forgive without limit, love your fellow as you love yourself, help the people in needs, marry only one, divorce not, avoid sexual immorality, etc.). If you can notice in the Koran, Allah keeps urging his followers to go to war and kept scaring them for not heeding his call. Why is it necessary for Allah to repeat the commandment of slaughtering the disbelievers at numerous times? there are over 160 verses in Koran that urge killing non-Muslims and hypocrites. why is it one or two verses are not enough? This is because many of his early believers kept refusing to fight. Muhammad deceived his believers by telling them that God commanded them to slaughter, rape, and rob the non-Muslims. These deeds are utterly wrong, in fact, majority of Islamic countries have laws contradicting to Allah’s commandments because they know in their hearts that these acts are sinful. For instance, Allah allows infant girl to get married, but most Islamic countries established a ripe age to marry off their girls. The Bible says, “The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God (Jesus) appeared was to destroy the devil’s work” [1 John 3:8].

11.) [4:104] And do not weaken in pursuit of the enemy. If you should be suffering – so are they suffering as you are suffering, but you expect from Allah that which they expect not. And Allah is ever Knowing and Wise. 

COMMENT: Here in this verse, Allah encourages his believers to chase the enemy (non-Muslims) though they were not threatening the Muslims. This is another proof that Islam demands persecution of non-Muslims. This commandment is opposite to Jesus’ teaching which discourages violence and promotes peace. Jesus commanded us to forgive the people who sinned against us seventy-seven times [Matthew 18:21-22]. He says, “If someone slaps you on the right cheek, turn the other cheek toward him [Luke 6:29]. Islam claims that she is a religion of peace, but she encourages killing the disbelievers. Islam claims that she is a religion of no compulsion, but she orders to kill those who won’t accept her, as well as, those who want to leave her. Islam claims that she believes in Jesus, but she does not follow Jesus’ teachings. Indeed, Islam does not walk the talk, what her right hand is talking is not what her left hand is doing. Islam is a deceiver.

12.) [5:33] Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment, 

COMMENT: What group really causes corruption upon Earth, Christianity or Islam? let us make comparisons;

Is it the one which loves the non-believers or the one which slaughters and chops off the non-believers?

Is it the one which teaches to marry only a grown girl or the one which allows to marry a child girl?

Is it the one which teaches to marry only one wife or the one which allows having many wives?

Is it the one which prohibits slaving or the one which allows slaving and selling slaves?

Is it the one which teaches peace or the one which teaches terrorism and slaughtering?

Is it the one which prohibits stealing or the one which allows raiding and looting non-believer’s wealth?

Is it the one which prohibits extortion or the one which allows kidnap for ransom?

Is it the one which condemns sexual immorality or the one which allows to rape and sell slave women for sex?

Is it the one which prohibits lying or the one which allows lying to deceive people?

In reality, it is Islam who corrupted the moral standard established by God Jesus Christ. Allah is Satan who pretends to be God. Allah is so ferocious against non-Muslims, esp. Christians. His wrath and hatred is unquenchable, that he wants to crucify them and chop off their head, hands, and feet. Having not yet contented with the chopping the bodies of non-Muslims, he will also burn their spirits in hell, what a merciful Allah! Christians do not harm Muslims, contrarily, they help them in their hard times. In the Bible, God teaches limitless forgiving. He disallows us to judge our sinful fellow because all of us are sinners. God is merciful, righteous, and miraculous, but this Allah is full of wickedness, he has no mercy to the people, He wants them to submerge in blood and sexual immorality. He had not done a single miracle, only Muhammad knew him. He loves only Muhammad, he pampered his sexuality, thirst for blood, and power hunger. So why we should follow this blood-thirsty, immoral, and unrighteous god?

13.) [8:12] “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” 

COMMENT: This verse is extremely brutal, it verifies that slaughtering alone is not enough to quench Allah’s wrath. He wants beheading and cutting off fingers of those who don’t believe him, their only sin is that they are not Muslims. The God in the Bible condemns violence and shedding of innocent blood, He says; Their feet run to evil, And they hasten to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity, devastation and destruction are in their highways. The way of peace they know not; and there is no justice in their paths: they have made themselves crooked paths: whosoever goes in them shall not know peace [Isaiah 59:7-8]. Allah is lying in claiming that he is the most merciful and righteous, for there are numerous people who could not do barbarity. Obviously, these people are more merciful and righteous than him. This verse inspires criminals to spread terrorism. For Muslims to condemn the brutal actions of the Jihadists, you are ignorant of your own Faith, because Jihadists are the ones who follow the true Islam. Allah and his prophet call you hypocrites since you don’t join Jihad. Allah will punish you severely in this world and afterlife. 

14.) [8:15-16] O ye who believe! when ye meet the Unbelievers in hostile array, never turn your backs to them. Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless manoeuvring for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey’s end. 

COMMENT: Muslims are not allowed to retreat from fighting or else Allah will punish them in hell. This how bitter and pitiful the believers in Islam are, they are caught in between fierce deaths. So it means those terrorists who ran away from Christian military, will be thrown into hell. Muhammad had formulated strategies in order to control his believers: First, he scares the believers with his Allah’s revelations if they don’t fight or leave Islam; Second, he incites the Muslim fighters by giving shares from their stolen wealth and sex with girl captives; Third, he assures paradise to the Muslim fighters, plus a bonus of 72 female spirits, with voluptuous breasts and delicious ever-virgin pussies. And of course to match with the ever-virgin pussies in heaven, Allah will also make the Jihadists’ penises ever erect [Sunan Ibn Majah, Zuhd (Book of Abstinence) 39; Al-Itqan fi Ulum al-Qur’an, p. 351, & [9:20-21]. What a naughty Allah! It looks he will fill his paradise with orgies. And poor Jihadists, it looks like they will have trouble handling their forever erect penises. Jesus said that at the resurrection people will be like angels in Heaven, there will be no more marriages [Matthew 22:30]. Sexual urge is driven by hormones, how can spirits desire sexually? This teaching is so ridiculous, yet, this is the main cause of terrorism. Many Muslim men are ready to kill and be killed because they so believe of these lies.

15.) [8:39] “And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion is all for Allah” 

COMMENT: This verse is one of the clear proofs that Muslims are commanded by Allah to wipe out all non-Muslims in the world opposite to the negation of Muslim defenders. 

16.) [8:57] So if you (Muhammad) gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson. 

COMMENT: In this verse, Muslims are commanded by Allah to be brutal towards the non-Muslims whenever they have the advantage. This is in contrast with the verse [47:35] where Muslims are commanded to be friendly whenever they are at disadvantage position. See how deceptive is this Allah? he teaches his believers how to trick other people. 

17.) [8:59-60] And let not those who disbelieve think that they shall come in first; surely they will not escape. And prepare against them what force you can and horses tied at the frontier, to frighten thereby the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them, whom you do not know (but) Allah knows them; and whatever thing you will spend in Allah’s way, it will be paid back to you fully and you shall not be dealt with unjustly. 

COMMENT: . . . to frighten thereby the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them . . . Koran and Hadiths alike repeatedly urge terrorism. How come Muslim leaders keep telling us that they condemn terrorism? In fact, the sure way for Muslims to be admitted to Allah’s paradise is to kill or terrorize the non-Muslims. 

18.) [8:65] “O Prophet, urge the believers to fight. If there are among you twenty [who are] steadfast, they will overcome two hundred. And if there are among you one hundred [who are] steadfast, they will overcome a thousand of those who have disbelieved because they are a people who do not understand” 

COMMENT: This verse is also deceiving. Muhammad brainwashed the Muslims that they belong to the true religion, that they are the most privileged people of the world. But in truth, of all the religious people, Muslims are the ones who don’t understand their own religion. They are the most deceived people, Muhammad deceived the people and turned them killers and sexually immoral. Islam has no root from Yahweh, the true God.  Allah was the moon god, whose kingdom was Kaaba along with its 359 idol cohorts. How could this pagan god evolve into Yahweh? God hates idolatry, how much more if you call Him “Allah”, the pagan god? Muslims and even some Christians should ponder on this matter. 

19.) [8:67] It is not for any prophet to have captives until he has made slaughter in the land. Ye desire the lure of this world and Allah desireth (for you) the Hereafter, and Allah is Mighty, Wise. 

COMMENT: . . . It is not for any prophet to have captives until he has made slaughter in the land . . . this is utterly a lie! there were many prophets who did not stain their hands with blood (namely; Job, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Ezekiel, Hosea, Amos, Elijah, Elisha, Zechariah, etc.). To justify his blood thirst for the captives esp. those who had ridiculed him and his Islam, Muhammad supposedly had received the above revelation commanding them to kill their captives. According to a Hadith, this event was emotional because Allah wanted his believers to personally kill their own kin who happened to be their captives so as to test their faiths. 

20.) [8:7] [Remember, O believers], when Allah promised you one of the two groups – that it would be yours – and you wished that the unarmed one would be yours. But Allah intended to establish the truth by His words and to eliminate the disbelievers. 

COMMENT: . . .  and to eliminate the disbelievers. This is one of the many proofs that Allah commands his believers to wipe out the non-Muslims. Islam leaders should stop deceiving people by telling Islam is a religion of peace. I urge all Muslims to study the Bible so that you will know the true nature and teaching of God. He so loves us that He went to the world in the flesh of Jesus. He made Jesus as our path to Heaven and no other way. The words of God does not change, so it is impossible for Him to found another Church and contradicts His previous teachings. 

 21.) [9:5] “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.” 

COMMENT: . . . then slay the idolaters wherever you find them . . . Islamic apologists also used to say Muslims are just defending and forced to fight. The statement above never hints they are under attack, on the contrary, they are the aggressors. To ambush an idolater (non-Muslim) suggests that the idolater is unaware of the attack. 

 22.) [9:14] “Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people.” 

COMMENT: Allah also commands his fighters to disgrace non-Muslims, one of these disgraceful attacks is to rape their girls including married ones. For Allah, the rapist and killers are nice people and the victims are the bad people. Allah tells his Muslims they are the nicest guys on Earth, and the Kafirs are apes and pigs.

 23.) [9:20] “Those who believe, and have left their homes and fought with their wealth and their lives in Allah’s way are of much greater worth in Allah’s sight. These are they who are triumphant.” 

COMMENT: This verse is another proof that Muslims are commanded to leave their homes and fight the non-Muslims. And also, Allah promises that the Jihadists will go to his paradise. On the other hand, those physically weak (such as paralytic, sickly, or girly), it is impossible for them to enter into the Islamic paradise.

24.) [9:29] Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection. 

COMMENT: Here, Allah orders his devotees to fight against the disbelievers, but if they acknowledge the superiority of Islam and pay the tax of subjection, they will be spared. The true color of Islam surfaces on this verse _that is to gain wealth more than the religious cause.

25.) [9:30] “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!” 

COMMENT: Nowhere in the writings and tradition of the Jews telling that Ezra is the son of Allah. Moreover, the prophet of Islam did not understand what is ‘Messiah’, it means “the anointed king”. God promised to come to Earth in flesh and would raise an eternal king. He will be called Jesus (which means ‘God saves’, Matthew 1:21), Jesus claimed He’s the king of Heaven [John 18:36 & John 6:38]; For Jesus to claim He is the king of Heaven is equivalent to claiming He is God, since, the king of Heaven is the most powerful of all.

26.) [9:38-39] “O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.” 

COMMENT: In these verses, Allah berate the Muslims who refuse to fight for his cause, and urge them to fight even if it means death to them, or else they will be punished severely. Here we can see the obvious coercion by Allah on His followers. 

27.) [9:41-42] Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew. Had it been a near adventure and an easy journey they had followed thee, but the distance seemed too far for them. Yet will they swear by Allah (saying): If we had been able we would surely have set out with you. They destroy their souls, and Allah knoweth that they verily are liars. 

COMMENT: The above statement is another proof that Muslims are urged to fight even if they are not under attack, since, the Jihadists described in this account need to journey to a faraway place in order to kill the infidels. Likewise the above statement reveals the bad attitude of Allah who could not accept his follower’s absence due to poor condition, even calling them liars. In the advent of Islam, many refused to kill and die for Allah, the reason why Islamic Scriptures are filled with violent teachings, because Muhammad kept pushing them to fight via his series of so-called divine revelations. The most effective one which incited the early Jihadists much was when Muhammad told them that Allah would award them with 72 virgin spirits in paradise, their breasts are big, and their vaginas are ever virgin and delicious. Allah will also take out women sentenced in Hell and give it to his Jihadists in Heaven [Al-Itqan fi Ulum al-Qur’an, p. 351]. What type of Islamic Heaven is this? In the Bible, no one from hell can go across the Heaven [Luke 16:26]. Heaven is holy, no sex maniacs, murderers, and liars are allowed to enter [Revelation 21:8].

28.) [9:73] “O Prophet! fight hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.” 

COMMENT: In this verse Allah orders his Jihadists to also fight the hypocrites (moderate Muslims who refused to wage war). This also explains why Jihadists kill people indiscriminately without thinking that there might be Muslims included in the carnage. Allah has no care whoever gets killed in the attack. So for the Muslims out there who don’t participate the fight but celebrate the kafirs’ sufferings inflicted by Jihadists, you should think twice, who knows, your family will be the next victim.

29.) [9:88] “But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper.” 

COMMENT: . . . and fight with their wealth . . . it means that if you can’t go to war, at least you can provide wealth to finance the fighters. Allah not only urge the Muslims to fight but also to finance his cause. It looks like Allah looks impotent since he could not help his fighters with his supernatural power. All he knows is to command and hide in the corner while waiting for his 20% share of the booties. 

30.) [9:111] Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allah’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Quran. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success. 

COMMENT: In what manner has Allah purchased the lives of the people? And from whom Allah purchased his people? This statement suggests that Allah has superior or co-equal. Muhammad is caught clueless in concocting this so-called revelation. This “purchasing thing” must be copied from the teaching of Christianity, where Jesus purchased or redeemed humanity from destruction through His blood.  Jesus gave up His life for mankind to have eternal life. This is the manner Jesus bought us from destruction because of sin. On the other hand, there’s no killing and be killed binding on believers in Torah and the Gospel _Muhammad is lying. He used his concocted revelation for his greed. Killing is the work of Satan, the devil rejoices seeing people murdering each other. Only the religion of Islam commands its believers to kill and rape the non-believers.

31.) [9:123] “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.” 

COMMENT: In this verse, Allah commands his believers to fight their neighbors. Make them find hardness, meaning Muslims should harass or torture their neighbors. People have reasons why they are afraid of Muslims among them. For Muslims to want peace and respect from other people, you should leave Islam because this religion teaches you to kill and torture your neighbors. It is insane to say that you want peace and respect from other groups while your duty is to kill or torture them.

32.) [33:60-61] Truly, if the Hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and those who stir up sedition in the City, desist not, We shall certainly urge you up against them: Then will they not be able to stay in it as your neighbors for any length of time: They shall have a curse on them: whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain (without mercy).

COMMENT: Here in this verse, the devotees of Islam are encouraged by Muhammad or Allah to slay the Hypocrites (or Muslims who don’t want to fight). This explains why Jihadists also kill Muslim civilians. This tells also that Allah has no love for the Muslims, he just wants the people to kill each other. Again, I urge the Muslims to study the Bible so that you will know that Jesus is the true God who appeared to the people in human form. He commands us to love each other and forgive our fellow who have sinned against us. He forbids us to judge our sinful fellow because we also are sinners subject to His judgment. If we cannot forgive our fellow, we will not also be forgiven of our sins against God. The Bible is not corrupted, Muslim leaders are lying to you. In fact, no trace in Koran and Hadiths that says the Torah and Gospel were corrupted by Jews and Christians. On the contrary Koran confirms the truth of the Torah and Gospel [Koran 3:3]. People may corrupt but not the words of God. Satan makes Islam as his instrument to invert the truth. Satan makes wrong good and makes right bad in your sight. This how clever Satan is for he is the father of lies [John 8:44]. 

33.) [47:4] So, when you meet those who disbelieve, smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly. Thereafter either set them free as a favor or let them ransom themselves until the war lays down its burden. If it had been Allah’s Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost, 

COMMENT: . . . or let them ransom themselves . . . Is this the true God’s cause? This explains why Islamic group used to kidnap people and have their captives ransomed. If they are not redeemed, their necks will be cut off. I hope my Muslim brothers can detect the manipulations of their fake prophet. Islam was established in Arabia by Muhammad for personal reason under the guise of religion. Muhammad’s religion is comparable to Mormonism and Iglesia ni Kristo. Where each of the founders claimed that he’s the last prophet. And each of them committed sexual assault.

34. [47:35] So be not weak and ask not for peace (from the enemies of Islam), while you are having the upper hand. Allah is with you, and will never decrease the reward of your good deeds. 

COMMENT: . . . ask not for peace (from the enemies of Islam), while you are having the upper hand . . . Is this really the teaching of the true God? this sentence totally negates the Muslims’ claim that they are peace-loving. They only agree to peace when they are at the disadvantage position. In this verse, Allah teaches his followers to trick non-Muslims. This was the strategy of Muhammad at the start of his Islam:  first, he was friendly to the Jews and Christians, but when his group gained strength; he went against them, killed them, raped their women, and robbed their wealth.

35. [48:17] No blame is there on the blind, nor is there blame on the lame, nor on one ill (if he joins not the war): But he that obeys Allah and his Messenger – (Allah) will admit him to Gardens beneath which rivers flow; and he who turns back, (Allah) will punish him with a grievous Penalty. 

COMMENT: Some Islam apologists interprets that Jihad means ‘spiritual struggle’. If that so, then why are the blind, lame and sick are exempted? This is clearly physical fighting. This verse also says that those who turns back from fighting will suffer torment in hell. Muhammad made sure that he could control his followers through his supposed divine revelations.

36.) [48:29] “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are ruthless against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves” 

COMMENT: . . . and merciful among themselves . . . This claim is not true since fighting among Muslims is common, why is this happening? Because love, mercy, forgiveness, morality, righteousness, and truthfulness are not taught in Islamic society.

37.) [61:4] Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure.

COMMENT: Allah only loves you if you are willing to shed blood for his cause. I hope my Muslim brothers can finally detect the obvious manipulations of Muhammad. For Muslims to live peacefully is against their god. Islam will make you a terrorist, murderer, sexually immoral, etc. So don’t be surprised anymore if you hear a Muslim group doing kidnap for ransom, raping captive girls, blowing a building, and chopping the body of non-Muslims and hypocrites.

38.) [61:10-11] O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment. That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!

COMMENT: From this statement, Allah tricks his believers that the only way to save you from Hell is to wage war against the non-Believers, that you need to give up your lives and wealth for Allah’s cause. Hadiths account that Muhammad incited war against non-Muslims mainly to plunder their wealth, enjoying his one fifth share of the booty. They made their captive women as sex slaves and prostitutes, as well as, had their captives ransomed for large amount. I urge Muslims to research about this fact so that you will know the truth. Islam is fake from any angle, its teaching is to kill heavily and indulge in sexual immoralities. Allah was worshiped in Kaaba as a moon god, how could this god evolve into Yahweh, the God of Abraham? Muhammad was a big liar, he had done no miracle. Koran has no moral values, instead it contains a massive killing commandments. It is plagiarized, immoral, brutal, and superstitious.

39.) [66:9] “O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.” 

COMMENT: Again in this verse, Muslim devotees are urged to persecute not just non-Muslims, but also moderate Muslims or Hypocrites. For the Muslims who refuse to fight, beware!

QUOTED FROM HADITHS: 

1.) [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220] Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them. 

COMMENT: Muhammad boasted that he became victorious through his terrorism tactic. This hadith confirms the Koranic verse [8:12]. This also confirms that terrorism is fundamental in Islam and employs this tactic to extend their dominion.

2.) [Volume 4, Book 52, Number 256] Narrated As-Sab bin Jaththama: The Prophet passed by me at a place called Al-Abwa or Waddan, and was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans).” I also heard the Prophet saying, “The institution of Hima is invalid except for Allah and His Apostle.” 

COMMENT: In this hadith, Muhammad verifies that it is permissible to kill non-combatants (such as children, women, or old people) in the process of attacking non-Muslims. The statement of Muhammad provides justification for the many Islamic terrorists in which they have no care for non-combatants to be included in the death toll. 

3.) [Volume 4, Book 52, Number 260] Narrated Ikrima: Ali burnt some people and this news reached Ibn ‘Abbas, who said, “Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, ‘Don’t punish (anybody) with Allah’s Punishment.’ No doubt, I would have killed them, for the Prophet said, ‘If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.’ 

4.) [Volume 9, Book 89, Number 271] Narrated by Abu Musa : A man embraced Islam and then reverted back to Judaism. Mu’adh bin Jabal came and saw the man with Abu Musa. Mu’adh asked, “What is wrong with this (man)?” Abu Musa replied, “He embraced Islam and then reverted back to Judaism.” Mu’adh said, “I will not sit down unless you kill him (as it is) the verdict of Allah and His Apostle. 

COMMENT: The above Hadiths confirm the Koranic commandment which is to kill those who left Islam. Muslim apologists cannot deny these evidences for they are solid. They keep reasoning that Hadiths are not reliable, but much of them if not all, confirm the Koranic message. 

5.) [Sahih Bukhari 2:36] “The person who participates in (Holy Battles) in Allah’s cause and nothing compels him do so except belief in Allah and His Apostle, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty ( if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise ( if he is killed).” 

COMMENT: Here, Allah promises booty to his Jihadists. If you are a man of dignity surely you won’t accept a reward coming from robbery or looting.

6.) [Sahih Bukhari 8:387] Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’. And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally.” 

COMMENT: . . . and slaughter as we slaughter . . . This statement means that in order to be a Muslim, you have to slaughter non-Muslims. It looks like Allah’s paradise will be filled with murderers. 

7.)  [Sahih al-Bukhari 11:626] [Muhammad said:] “I decided to order a man to lead the prayer and then take a flame to burn all those, who had not left their houses for the prayer, burning them alive inside their homes.” 

COMMENT: Not just Muhammad killed people he hated by the sword but also by fire. In this statement, He ordered to burn Muslims alive, together with their houses and properties, just because they won’t go outside for prayer. This is how the prophet of the religion of peace behaved, this man is clearly barbaric and merciless, if not insane. I hope you Muslims can now realize that your prophet is devil. Why you should follow the teaching of a very wicked person? This religion is not only killing Christians but also their members who don’t follow their rules strictly. For how many Muslims who were also killed in the killing spree or bombing activity? Islamists or Jihadists are the true Muslims who strictly follow their belief. They do this bravely because this is the cost of Allah’s paradise, Allah demands their blood. No sane person wants to kill and die without purpose. Both Koran and Hadiths reveal to you the true image of Islam. 

8.) [Sahih al-Bukhari 4344, 4345] 

. . . Once Mu`adh paid a visit to Abu Musa and saw a chained man. Mu`adh asked, “What is this?” Abu Musa said, “(He was) a Jew who embraced Islam and has now turned apostate.” Mu`adh said, “I will surely chop off his neck!” 

9. [Sahih Al-Bukhari 52:177] Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.” 

10.) [Sahih al-Bukhari 52:73] “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Know that Paradise is under the shades of swords’.” 

11.) [Sahih Muslim 1:149] “Abu Dharr reported: I said: Messenger of Allah, which of the deeds is the best? He (the Holy Prophet) replied: Belief in Allah and Jihad in His cause…”

12.) [Sahih Muslim 1:33] the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah 

13.) [Sahih Muslim 19:4294] “When the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) appointed anyone as leader of an army or detachment he would especially exhort him… He would say: Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war… When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them… If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them.”

COMMENT: . . . the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) appointed anyone as leader of an army or detachment he would . . . This sentence proves that the group of Muhammad is not promoting God’s word but rather to gather an army so that to dominate, terrorize, and enslave the people. Muhammad the founder of this group only used God’s word to manipulate his men in order to succeed in his political agenda. He had partial knowledge of Judaism and Christianity and used it to trick people . . . If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands . . . see? this Muhammad is more inclined to amass wealth than to explain to the people about his mission being the messenger of God. 

14.) [Sahih Muslim 31:5917] “Ali went a bit and then halted and did not look about and then said in a loud voice: ‘Allah’s Messenger, on what issue should I fight with the people?’ Thereupon he (the Prophet) said: ‘Fight with them until they bear testimony to the fact that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his Messenger’.” 

COMMENT: This account tells us about an innocent farming community of Khaibar that Muslims were about to attack. This community lived peacefully and had no previous issue against them and yet Muhammad wanted his men to attack them. Ali felt it unreasonable, so he wanted his Prophet to clarify the reason for this new mission. Muhammad’s reply was, the people should be attacked because they are not Muslims . . . there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his Messenger”. . . One more thing to notice is that Muhammad keeps attaching his name to Allah to show they are partners though he claimed that Allah has no partner.

15.) [Abu Dawud 14;2526] The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist)  

COMMENT: If you utter, “There is no god but Allah”you should not be killed or excommunicated whatever sin you committed. This is the convenience of Islam, that’s why criminals are flocking in Islam, because they can do any evil they want, and yet they will go to their paradise. What is ironic, Muhammad predicted that his members will fight with the Antichrist. But who is the Antichrist? kindly read below; 

[2 John 1:7] For many deceivers have gone out into the world, refusing to confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Any such person is the deceiver and the Antichrist 

[1 John 2:22]  Who is the liar, if it is not the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the Antichrist, who denies the Father and the Son. 

Muhammad clearly denies the Father and the Son, therefore, he himself is the Antichrist (son of destruction). In fact, his religion had killed Millions of Christians to prove that he is against Christ’ believers. How can an Antichrist battle with an Antichrist? Islam is the Antichrist, denying the Father and the Son. In truth, it is the Catholic Christianity which will battle against Islam, the Antichrist. 

16.) [Abu Dawud 14:2527] The Prophet said: Striving in the path of Allah (jihad) is incumbent on you along with every ruler, whether he is pious or impious 

COMMENT: This Hadith confirms the Koranic verses, where every Muslim is commanded to fight against non-Muslims. 

17.) [Tabari 7:97] The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.” 

COMMENT: Ashraf was a poet, killed by Muhammad’s men because he insulted Islam. From Ashraf, Muhammad’s anger reached down to any Jew. If really he is a prophet, he should have treated people equally, no hatred and bitterness. For all people are created by God.

18.) [Tabari 17:187] “‘By God, our religion (din) from which we have departed is better and more correct than that which these people follow. Their religion does not stop them from shedding blood, terrifying the roads, and seizing properties.’ And they returned to their former religion.” 

COMMENT: This Hadith reports the words of a group of Jews and Christians who had converted to Islam, but realized their error after being shocked by the non-stop violence and looting activities in the name of Allah. The price of their decision to return to their previous religion was that they were beheaded and their women and children were enslaved by caliph Ali. This Hadith also proves that killing and abuse are endemic to Islam. 

19.) [Ishaq 313] The Muslims told Abu Safyan to pay them a ransom to free his son Amr. He replied, “Am I to suffer the double loss of my blood and money? After you have killed my son Hanzala, you want me to pay you a ransom to free Amr?” 

COMMENT: This Hadith confirms the Koranic verse [47:4], where the group of Muhammad required ransom money from the family of their victims. According to this Hadith, the group of Muhammad mercilessly killed Hanzala (son of Abu Safyan), then shamelessly asked a ransom for the release of Amir (other son of Abu Safyan). This Hadith confirms that Muhammad was more inclined of wealth rather than spreading the message of God being a prophet. This Hadith also proves that Muhammad was a fake prophet. 

20.) [Ishaq 316] Following Badr, Muhammad sent a number of raiders with an order to capture some of the Meccans and burn them alive. But on the following day he sent word to us, “I told you to burn these men if you got hold of them, but I decided that none should be punished by fire save Allah. So if you capture them, kill them. 

21.) [Ishaq 322] Allah said, ‘Do not turn away from Muhammad when he is speaking to you. Do not contradict his orders. And do not be a hypocrite, one who pretends to be obedient to him and then disobeys him. Those who do so will receive My vengeance. You must respond to the Apostle when he summons you to war. . . I will cast terror into the hearts of those who reject Me. So strike off their heads and cut off their fingers. All who oppose Me and My Prophet shall be punished severely. 

COMMENT: This Hadith tells us the obvious favoritism of Allah towards Muhammad. Noticing that many of his converts did not want to wage war, Muhammad supposedly had received another revelation from Allah commanding his believers not disobey his favorite prophet, or else they will suffer dismemberment of their bodies. This how barbaric is Allah to the Muslims, and yet he claims that he is the most merciful being. 

22.) [Ishaq 326] If you come upon them, deal them so forcibly as to terrify those who would follow them that they may be warned. Make a severe example by terrorizing Allah’s enemies. 

COMMENT: This hadith confirms the Koranic verses commanding to terrorize the disbelievers. Technically, Muslims are terrorists and murderers because if they do not terrorize and kill kafirs, they can’t be a Muslim, instead hypocrites. Allah will punish also the hypocrites severely. 

23.) [Ishaq 327/Hisham 484] Allah said, a prophet should slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. You craved the desires of this world, its goods and ransom captives would bring, but Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion. . .  Allah made booty lawful and good. He used it to unity of purpose, so enjoy what you captured. 

COMMENT: This hadith confirms the Koranic verse [8:67] commanding the Islamic prophet to slaughter first before collecting captives. Allah made plundering another’s property lawful and good. Robbery is good in the eyes of Allah, he even commands his fighters to enjoy raping their captives. In contrast, the God of the Bible prohibits stealing and lust for women.

24.) [Ishaq: 349] “The battle will tell the world about us. Distant men will heed our warning. The infidels may cut off my leg, yet I am a Muslim. I will exchange my life for one with VIRGINS fashioned like the most beautiful statues.” 

COMMENT: This statement of Ali confirms that Jihadists expect virgins in afterlife. For they so believe the lies of their prophet that they will get 72 virgins as award if they fight for Allah’s cause.

25.) [Ishaq: 357] Their leaders were left prostrate. Their heads were sliced off like melons. Many adversary I left on the ground to rise in pain, broken, and plucked. When the battle was joined, I dealt them with a vicious blow. Their arteries cried aloud, their blood flowed. This is  what I did on the day of Badr. 

26.) [Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 990] In this passage, a companion recounts an episode in which he staged a surprise ambush on a settlement: “I leapt upon him and cut off his head and ran in the direction of the camp shouting ‘Allahu akbar’ and my two companions did likewise”. 

COMMENT: Cutting off disbeliever’s head while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ is not new to Islam’, but a tradition that began with Muhammad. Indeed, this religion is the most barbaric in the world constantly spreading terrors in different countries. The Koran claims that the best people of the world are Muslims. Is this correct? we know that much of the contents of Islamic scriptures are lies and superstitions. Can we call murderers, robbers, rapists, and pedophiles best people of the world? Whatever logic to be applied, these behaviors are revolting.

27.) [The Life of The Prophet, Ibn Hisham’s, via Wikipedia] 

Kinana al-Rabi, who had the custody of the treasure of Banu Nadir, was brought to the apostle who asked him about it. He denied that he knew where it was. A Jew came (Tabari says “was brought”), to the apostle and said that he had seen Kinana going round a certain ruin every morning early. When the apostle said to Kinana, “Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?” He said “Yes”. The apostle gave orders that the ruin was to be excavated and some of the treasure was found. When he asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so the apostle gave orders to al-Zubayr Al-Awwam, “Torture him until you extract what he has.” So he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad b. Maslama and he struck off his head, in revenge for his brother Mahmud. 

COMMENT: The account above is about the tribe of Banu Nadir which was attacked by the group of Muhammad. Poor Kinana, he was tortured and lost his head under the command of a holy prophet worthy of emulation, just because he refused to disclose the wealth depository. This proves that Muhammad is only after of the wealth rather than to spread the word of God, the very purpose of a prophet. 

28.) A Letter to the King of ‘Oman, Jaifer, and his Brother Abd Al-Jalandi [Saifur Rahman, The Sealed Nectar p.227-228] 

“Embrace Islam… If you two accept Islam, you will remain in command of your country; but if your refuse my Call, you’ve got to remember that all of your possessions are perishable. My horsemen will appropriate your land, and my Prophethood will assume preponderance over your kingship.” 

COMMENT: The above is one of the threatening letters from Muhammad to rulers of other countries. The letter says, they (countries) should accept Islam or suffer deaths and destruction. Is this the religion of a loving and most merciful God or is this the religion of Satan? How long our Islam leaders cover the hideous truth of this cult? Your firm advocacy for this cult means your own destruction
